panoramic field pics

my buddy and i set up a field this summer. took some pics last weekend and
photoshopped them together into panoramas. but first a little info on the field:

it's a little bit ghetto but cost us $0. everything was scavenged from various
places and we had some of it from a previous field we made a few years ago.

we got a lot of pallets and started doubling them up and propping them up
with 2x4's pulled off other pallets. took a lot of time and work and the
bunkers don't end up being very big, so we kinda gave up on that.

when we were most of the way finished we found a place with a supposedly
unlimited supply of free spools. we put a couple in as well as quite a few
spool "tops". we cut the bottom foot or so off two and made an "X" out of 2
of them. this bunker works really well and i'd like to do more of them.

the field is a pretty good size for 3-5 people per team and allows for plenty of
cover. the terrain is not flat so the team facing south is shooting uphill
the whole time, but the three big trees are huge lane blockers so it allows a
lot of movement and evens it out pretty well.

next up would be lengthening the snake and adding some more three
dimensionality to all the bunkers. any other suggestions?

here's the pics:

That is probably the BEST example of "natural boundries" Ive ever seen in a field.

GOOD JOB!

One suggestions, get some of that foaming gap sealer to fill in the cracks of the pallets so people can't shoot/see through them.

it is some land at my parent's place out in the country. most of the land in
the area is either woods or farm land, so that was the flattest/biggest open
space we could find. it was all 2-3ft tall grass before i mowed that area.

thanks for all the compliments/suggestions.

you may want to angle a few of those bunkers to make it less of a head on game, you'll end up getting alot better if you learn to work the angles.

Really good considering that it cost you nothing. I would suggest maybe getting a few more bunkers set up. But not absolutely necessary. Good job.

thanks. a couple more bunkers would be good for more than 5 people per team.

here's a sample of the raw pics placed next to each other:

the rest was photoshop tweaking.
