Is this place actually like that or have you digitally touched the images to get such a clear reflection of the sky on the water below.
Thanks ,as far as the reflection is concerned, it is as shot, no manipulation.

@trance nut- may we see the exif data on those 2 pics?
also, do you have a flickr.com account? I'd love to see more of your work.
@mansidea- thanks

I have a question for the experts.
when using manual focus on landscapes, what i do is I zoom the lens to the farthest object I can see clearly, then fine adjust the focus with the ring in front(I dont know the technical term for that part).
Then, I zoom back out to the required composition and click.
is that the best way to do it?

This picture is a real cool shot. The "big cat" is looking so cute and so relaxed in the human company.

My first attempt to do photo stitch. I was not able to get what I was thinking I would

The first one was ok as it had only 2 photos.
The Official non-auto Image thread-3.jpg
But the next 2 had more than 4 pictures and hence became like a circle. (Particularly the 2nd one)
When I took it I could see it in next to next on the screen.

Any hints to follow while taking those photo stitch options?

Mjothi,
These are the points I keep in mind
* Expose for the brightest portion of the scene you are photographing(You will not see the join line as in the 3rd pic), and switch to M mode and use the same exposure settings for all the photos in the sequence, If you are using a P&S then the photostich mode will ensure that all pics are shot at the same exposure settings of the first one.
* Use a tripod or atleast try to keep the horizon as straight as possible.
* Shoot as many as I want ensuring that atleast 40% of the pictures overlap

Hope this helps you.
