    The panorama effect is excellent, but it looks way over processed (fake), to me anyway.

    That is amazing, but yes -- the saturation of the colors is a bit overdone. It actually feels like it's HDR (is it? That would be a lot of effort on a panorama!).

    Stitching's good, but I agree that it's over-saturated.

    Great work. As far as being over-saturated, that depends on if you're going for a natural look or not. Photography is an art and art can be what you want it to be. It isn't always about exact representation.

    Yes, it is HDR. 5 shots wide x 3 exposures each. :) I appreciate the critique and will probably re-evaluate the saturation before I print it.

    Thank you! I really appreciate you all taking the time to critique this piece... I was "on the fence" myself about the saturation and hearing it from other photographers has helped me make up my mind. I'll probably post a revision when I re-process.
