A lake in panorama view

The last time I was by the lake I had this view:

Because I like to play around with photos and graphics software, I decided to make a panorama picture out of it. I took my HTC Magic and made these three Pictures:

At home it took me only a few clicks to create the final picture. I used the free software 'hugin' to join the single pictures. The use of the software is pretty simple, you load your images, set the camera angle (45° should be ok for a mobile phone camera) and press a button, the rest is done by the software. It's worth a look if you always wanted to create your own panorama pictures.

At the end I used 'gimp' to add the text and set the contrast to get a better effect. Et vĂ³ila, a professional looking panorama picture. By the way it's not allowed to use or distribute this picture in any way  without my permission.

Under Construction

As you can see, you can't see here much yet. I will try to fill up all that empty space with interesting posts. At first place I will use this blog as a replacement for my website and I will introduce some software I develop on my own. But that's not all, I will also talk about other stuff, probably things that are concerned with computers. :-)
By the way, this blog is also available in german, just click the link on the right top side of the page.
