Panoramas:  Shooting panoramic is a dramatic way to photograph a large landscape.  This usually involves taking a number images and splicing them together in post processing. Usually works fine but sometimes with an item in the foreground, maybe a log or large rock, it can looked warped.  The solution is to find the nodal point of the lens and this typically involves sliding the camera forward on the tripod so the center of the lens pivots as you pan the scene.  Amazon lists a nodal rail made by Neewer with an Arca Swiss mount for about $23.00 that is an economical solution to the phenomenon.
