I haven't had much of a chance to get my camera out lately, but have been trying to keep up with the amazing work of everyone here. I recently had a chance to try my hand at a couple of panorama shots - these were stitched together using PS Elements.

To my eye, you've got the technique down - I don't see seams or anything like that. For content, I like the second one. The first one has this interesting tree to one side, and then a near straight treeline in the background. It feels like it just missed, and I can't say exactly why.

Time of day would make all the difference in the world for the first shot. Imagine sunrise/sunset (or JUST before the evening blue hour), boost vibrance a little, polarizer would assist.

Thanks for the feedback. I wanted to include more to the left of the tree, however there was a group of people just out of the frame that I was trying to exclude.

I also noticed after I posted that the first one has semi-circular lines in the sky that seem to show up when I try to compress the file. If I leave it at 100% quality then the lines don't appear in the image.
