    C&C is always welcome too... the sky looks like crap, but it was raining all day and overcast... is this angle/comp any good?.. if so i might try going back when the sky and light looks better...

    This is a pano i took of the bridge - there are some parts where the photoshop photomerge is apparent... namely in the middle of the bridge there is a line where it goes from dark to light, and the clouds to the left of the 2nd pillar have the same problem...

    how do i blend it so it doesn't look like that?

    thanks!

    You need to shoot on full manual, and keep the settings the same. If you do that, you won't have the issue when you merge your photos.

    make sure you dont use the AWB, cause that can change a bit too and make the picture slightly different then the one before.
    And maybe reading THIS can help a bit too.

    oh you know what... i totally realize what i did wrong...

    i typically shoot everything in RAW, and as such dont even pay attention to white balance, as i always just do it afterwards in LR...

    this time, i made it shoot in jpg bc i knew i was going to be taking a massive pano (this was made up of 25 photos) so wanted to save size, and it must have done some WB stuff...

    thanks for the help... and yes i feel dum now :p
