Nice pano.
The exposure ';problems' don't really show in the photo.
How did you manage to keep the colors and lighting equal? Made any changes in exposure time?
What camera function did you use for it?
Many questions, but I sometimes have the same problem making a pano...

Thanks!

Tips I had read for panos are to not use a circular polarising filter - they create uneven colours in the sky, and to keep the same exposure/settings for all shots. I usually shoot full manual anyway, so it's easy to keep the ISO, aperture, and shutter speed the same. Before taking any shots I just read the exposure meter at the ends of the shot, and again at the middle where the sun was, and picked settings that were somewhere in the middle to get an average sort of exposure for all 19 shots.

Another tip was to make sure each shot overlaps by 1/2 to 2/3 of the next to minimise stitching error. You'd be surprised at wide focal lengths how much distortion you get.

Hope that all makes sense. If not, or you need more detail, just let me know :)

It makes a lot of sense to me :)
Thanks for the tips.

Indeed I tried making a pano with a 17 mm lens (forgot to take another) and on my pc I certainly noticed the distortion.
I guess using the right lens and making just some extra photo to create extra overlap makes it easier :)

Thanks again and good luck shooting more wonderfull photo's :boing:
