St Mary's Lighthouse and Blyth - Just practicing with the kit 55mm lens. I need a better lens! The stitch software has messed up the top of the lighthouse too.

Thanks I will practise keeping it switched off all
the time - I'm still learning the 550D and
waiting for my 200mm lens to turn up...

Simon, To fix the darker band around the
lighthouse, turn off the Auto Lighting Optimizer
on your 550D. This can be found on p 103 of the
manual. This feature tweaks the contrast on each
shot and is most noticeable in a panorama along
the tops of buildings. It is on by default and
needs to be off when shooting panos. Dave
