I totally redid the panorama of the mountains behind Canmore. I either have to learn Photoshop so that I can fix the area on the left where the sun is or crop it out.

Nice pano. Skies are definitely the toughest part of panoramas. Water reflections can be tough too. At this resolution I can't see too many of the typical pano flaws. Are you referring to the blown out area or the right? OK it is not as dramatic as the sky on the right, but I personally wouldn't expect much more given the vast difference in lighting.
How did you shoot? Now I have a camera I can control, I've found switching as much as possible to manual improves things a lot and stops the camera trying to "help".

It was shot in manual mode 3 frames bracketing 0, +1, +2 and then joined for HDR and stitched into the panorama. Lots of work but fun.

Will you print this? Last time I printed some panoramas I put a heap into a single image. And printed at A0 at the local photo lab. It was some ridiculously large mega pixels and about 150mb. I didn't give much thought to what would happen to colour depth, but they printed fine and worked out pretty cheap because they were having a half price enlargement sale.:D
Have you seen or tried the specific pano papers for your home printer? Up to 36".

Very striking shot and well done. I'd burn in the left corner some more though.
