Carlos, I notice some sharp bends in the fence of your photograph. I think
these are typical distortions or mismatch for analogue stitched photos.
Panorama stitch software adds fisheye-like distortions to each photographs
which made these sharp bends disappears. The amount of distortion depends on
the focal length that is used.

So far, I have only done some pano stitching on 35mm film. The problem is
that the files becomes very large if you want to get a high res pano,
especially if your want a 360 degree pano. Even 1200 dpi neg scans are too
big for my computer, so I have never felt the need for a 6x6 pano stitch

I'll put my more successful result on the Rollei-galery next week. Have to
dig up the file first.
