    Default National Geographic "panoramas"

    In a recent issue of National Geographic there was a piece on last year's hurricanes. There were some pictures of damage done by the storms and I was interested to see that they were "collages" of several images put together to make one big image. (I guess they weren't really panoramas because the images went both up and down as opposed to just panning from side to side). The thing that interested me about the photos was that no attempt was made to disguise the fact that these images were made from multiple shots. I wonder why they did that when even the most inexpensive digicams have the ability to stitch together more than one image to make a pano image. Perhaps they simply wanted the reader to see how they did it?

    I shoot a lot of Panoramas.
    There are times when the composite [collage] has much more impact than the stitched image.
    While not having seen the images you're referring to, I'd guess that the goal was to show impact rather than a contrived stitch.
    I'm just guessing.
