Scott, that's why I wanted to combine Panorama with a touch of HDR, the range of lighting there will be across the frame. To get the most cohesive image, I figured I needed to decide on an exposure (as well as focus distance) and set it manually, then do the same brackets on each shot. Of course, the sun came out a bit in the process, so it's more overcast on the left than the right.
Patrick, I can selectively adjust the color temperature across the image, but the quality of the light is also different. I know the image I posted is small, but you can still see that the sunlight is more diffuse on the left than the right. I kind of doubt there is any way to adjust that without creating other undesirable side effects.
I did a second sequence after this, so the sunlight might be better in it. I haven't looked, because it took a while to do this one. There were 33 shots total, 11 views with 3 exposures each. I started by looking at a center image, decided on the Photomatix settings I would use, then merged each bracket set with the same settings and saved them as 16 bit TIFF. Then took all those and merged them together with Photoshop, with a little final touch-up. I ended up with too obvious an "HDR" look on this first try, so I need to tone some things down for a second attempt. I'll try that with the second sequence after I look at this one more to decide what I don't like about it.
Of course, what do you do with an image like this? It's 24,000 pixels wide. I think it's mostly for grins, but it's a nice exercise toward creating a more reasonable pic, like maybe 3x1 aspect ratio.
