This pano contains2 frames stiched together. However, I took 4 shots raw. 2 shots per frame. One light, and one dark. So I stitched both the dark and light sets using the same parameters and bleneded the to EV esposures in elements. I supplemented the quick blend technique by some manual blended. I did some haze removing with the unsharp mask set to 50 radius, 20 amount, 0 threshold. I used +5 flashfill and color saturation boosts in the red and yellow/green especially. As well as boosting the sky alone. This is the final result.

By the way, The above image looks much brighter here on steves forums than it did in photoshop elements. I found why. In elementes I have full color managment optizied for print on. When I turn this off It becomes bright like the above picture. I am not sure why and I don't know what the difference is. When I resized and saved the above image it was with full color management selected. So why did it come out bright? I haven't noticed this happend before, at least to this exterme. It also appears that I will need to dodge some of the tips of the trees in the right side of the picture since they are darker than the rest (I didn't notice until I saw the lighter output).

This is a screen capture of what it looks like in photoshop elements:

Something is not clicking with the exposure blend. The foreground slope looks to separate, almost pasted.

the haze and sky are not helping you out here.. so the cloudless, bright day has left your image flat and undersaturated..
