I like it! I listened to Craig's critique. Sounds like he agrees.

ed,
i think you got a fine pano but also lucky.
a lot of times when people shoot panos they use the auto WB.. and end up wondering why do my shots look different from each other.. 2 things to get better panos. 1: shot a custom WB , and 2: meter one time and don't change the EV for the rest of the shoot...

I metered across the range, set the camera to fastest ISO and shutter speed. Photos were taken in RAW so white balance did not matter.

Congratulations. Thanks for the link, I had not seen that website before, it looks like it could have some interesting content.

Just need to move the clouds around and make a large print. I have made a print that is 11 3/4' X 36" and it looks good to me. The original file is RAW and about 159MB in size. I believe a high quality print could be done up to 3 Ft. X 9 Ft. The native size is 54" long at 240dppi.

The center image, on the sky looks a little bit darker and on the left side of the grass looks a little bit darker as well. Other than that, it looks great. If you didn't say it was a Panorama, I bet I wouldn't notice it.

For a first attempt it looks very good compared to my first attempt.

The darker area on the left was a shadow from cloud cover. I decided to not try to compensate for it in Photoshop, that is the way it was.

that's because you used AWB and changed the Ev.
you'll find my advice usefull if you use it.

I used no white balance, Raw sees no specific white balance, it can be changed in Raw conversion. The left side is darker because it was in shade caused by clouds .

I decided to leave the area in shade as it actually looked
