When you get right down to it, panorama stitching software transforms a series of photos into a virtual wide-angle photo. Sometimes your completed panorama can appear as if you shot the scene with a fish-eye lens. That means long, straight elements (such as roads) tend to curve and bend--as in this photo. Believe it or not, the driveway is quite straight in real life. The closer you are to your subject, the curvier some parts of your photo may look. The solution? Try to capture scenes with a uniform, distant vista: Close-ups don't work for panoramas.
