You can only be on the same picture twice...
Thanks kate and amdhappy . I'll try to make some more in a month or two.
Here you can see one of the interesting side effects of panoramic photography. Sometimes the same persons will be on your picture twice . I have a more extreme example with one man you can see four or five times on a wide panoramic shot. I don't think you'll see it clearly if I resize that one, though. This panorama contains four shots in two rows and have been stitched using the rectilinear (flat) projection of PTGui.

Thanks for pointing that out, Kushnirenko . I had not even noticed it yet, while I even had it printed .
I'm aware that using lines will sometimes give better results, but in this case that was not the problem. I simply did not have enough control points. I made this one after I came back from a week in Rome along with about five other panos like this one, and after a while I became fed up with choosing control points. This caused me to become a little careless, resulting in that mistake you noted.
Anyway, I fixed the problem now. I have replaced the picture with the new one.
EDIT: Hmm... Now I've found another mistake in the right column . I'll fix that one some other day.

Here is another panorama. It's kind of a lucky one, though. I wanted to take a picture inside the cathedral in Pisa and I couldn't really see what was on the display. The first picture I aimed a lot too high in my opinion, so the second one I aimed lower. I kept both pictures. Now, about five months later, I was looking at my photographs and thought: why not try and stitch those two . I am pleased with the result.

Again, you blow me away! I will try and do the same thing in Canterbury Cathederal in the coming weeks, if you don't mind me trying out your ideas?

Of course I don't mind. I would really love to see the result !!

And here is another panorama. It is made up of three shots. On the left you see the outskirts of Moneglia, on the right one of the many vineyards of the region, and in the center you can see the Mediteranean Sea.

"Gosprom". 8 shots. Kharkiv, Ukraine. Fuji FinePix S9500. Jan, 21, 2006
It is taken off on automatic exposute, i.e. the shots had a various exposition and differed on brightness.
It is stitch together by the program PTGui with Blend using Smartblend plugin.
Thus it was possible to increase a dynamic range!

Here's an interesting panorama. I shot this one in Rome. If you look from the left to the right you can see the rise of the roman empire (Look at it the other way around and it will show its subsequent downfall ).
Thanks for the tip on the Smartblend plugin, Kushnirenko. I'll look into that the coming week.
