This took me about 12 hours to make - obviously not me working on it continuously, but letting my computer fight with Photoshop. It took 6 hours and 3 attempts for it to do the initial panorama alone! Once I found out what the problem was, I was able to fix it, but it did take hours to make that work.
My Dad did point out that there needs to be more verticality to make it work better, so he has suggested he meets me in London one evening to try it out - watch this space!
Pretty rubbish day. Got woken up by my boyfriends Mum because she couldn't find one of the gerbils. Turned out he died in the night - RIP Oliver gerbil :(
