Here's the file reduced by a factor of 16 to get it to fit in the upload parameters. I went with Bicubic Smoother to relieve some of the crunchies from resizing. As you can see, I haven't even cropped it yet, so this is what I've got to work with (just 16 times as many pixels).

The second one is a 100% crop (from the 32MP file) to give you some ideal of its detail level. Not too bad for a 24mm lens and a 7 year old camera.

Nice detail. Its surprising to me that you needed a 24 to do that many images for the pano.

I like shooting my pano's in portrait orientation and with about 33% overlap to help minimize horizontal distortion. I could likely get by with less, but it's kinda become my standard workflow ... old dogs, new tricks kinda thing. That and I'm too lazy to change lenses.

Here is a try from me. I had problems avoiding some banding or artifacts in the sky. I started over without my usually ACR steps and worked it from scratch in Photoshop. It did not want any sharpening and I had to apply most stuff with a mask that avoided the sky.

Just some curves, added contrast/darkening of the foreground, Topaz Pop and some Topaz color to get some saturation, then darkened the whole image with levels at .9

Perhaps open the shadows with some Shadow/Highlights slider play, some color tweaks and a slight vignette?

My go at it - could stand some fine tuning...

Some luminosity layers, mid-tone contrast bump, Viveza2 and ColorEfex to finish...

Kent, Ran across your image and had to mess with it... First, I should note I am envious of this image... You did good... I cropped for a "More Traditional" pano look... Ran it through LR4, Nik Color efex, and Viveza... Finished off in CS5 with shadow / highlights, and selective sharpening... Hope I did not screw it up too bad... Jim
