Jerry,
It looks like those photos are on your hard drive, not a server like photobucket. They don't show up for us.

Thanks Vince.
Peanut you once ask how to make a tripod cap. Here is a very very easy way to create a mirror ball cap from the image you are using, its fool proof. I skip step 2, I don't think it's needed. http://www.panohead.net/howto.asp?p=p5

Thanks everyone for your advice and for taking the time to post those replies. I have learnt a lot these last few days.

Jerry that Photoshop link worked great. Im not sure if I like the mirror ball effect but using that technique I added a gradient fill to the bottom selected area then added some text and that worked great.

I do have quite a lot of Mrotator head to cover which is creating a bigger circle that I would have hoped for.  I guess I can make the circle smaller and touch out the bit ot the Mrotator head that shows. It's a lot less work than trying to take the whole tripod out. Do you know if it is possible to take the camera off the tripod and do a closer floor shot -obviously trying to keep your feet out of the way?  I'm using the Nikon 10.5mm fisheye.

Glad that worked for you Peanut. Yes you can take the camera set-up off the tripod and shoot the down shot. However if you are bracketing that will be hard to do. If shooting one shot you can hold the camera out as far as you can at about the same height as the other shots. When you stitch and blend it should blend out your feet. At least it did for me but I did it from the tripod. I have decided to just use caps in most shots. If you are carefull where you locate the tripod it will be easy to clone out. For example outside try to put it on grass.
If you want a small cap you can shoot without a down shot and clone in some of the black hole with the surrounding area and use a smaller cap.
As for that link, you can use most any type back ground to make interesting caps.

Peanut,
Don't know if you've seen this, but scroll down a bit and on the right you'll see "The 10 minute Pano." It shows one technique for doing a nader (down) shot and cloning out the tripod area.

In the U.S., with the Euro to dollar rate at 1.98 . . . not likely for me.

Not to say I wouldn't want one, but the two that they have that are "full feature" are well over $1,000 U.S..
