Thanks for the comments. I have quite a bit of room for trimming on either side of the pano, since it is wider than any standard size. I'll see what I can do.
It was taken with a new system that seems to be hit or miss as far as the stitching goes – in this case, it was perfect OOC without any seams visible. I tried to load a higher resolution verision to share the sharp details in the lower half of the frame, but the server would only take the more compressed file.
I have to admit my skills in landscape photography are woefully inadequete at this point, so the feedback on the composition is much appreciated.
Here's some more background on the location, which I've been watching through the seasons for a couple years now. This point along the Skyline Trail seems to be the only place to get a vista that doesn't include nearby roads and houses, but I have been struggling to find a time of day when the lighting is decent when viewed from that direction.
In this case, the cloud cover was just being broken up by gusty winds and there were dark shadows moving across the nearby slope, and at the same time the rest of the scene was hazy in a way that seemed vaguely similar to the way a painter would change the color tones to make them recede into the background. Actually, I tried a black and white coversion, and the foreground had the most yellow/red, mid-ground aqua, and background had a heavy blue cast. I'll try posting the monochrome version when I'm convinced its done.
It was a tough day for wildflowers, hundreds of acres of them, but extremely gusty so difficult to get really sharp shots. Will keep trying with those while they are still blooming.
