Impossible ! I'm on Mac and neither Smartblend neither Enblend are avalaible on my system (I was able to use Smartblend in past with a lot of tweaking on Mac but too complicated to get it working on Snow Leopard now :(

absolutely nothing on my lens ! and none post-processing on RAW excepted light adjustment (but I do same change on all pictures of one panorama !).

hum looks too clear in my point of view but I get the idea ;)

Vincèn,

I wonder if your monitor is colour calibrated?
That dark patch in the sky boarders on a black night sky, nothing like a daylight sky.

I guess it is very hard to compose for the snow and also the sky and you must shoot somewhat underexposed.
I see panoramas of snow and often the sky is not natural looking.

Yes, this is much more natural.

Yep I think it's probably the origin of problem :) as there is a strong difference of lighting between snow part and sky, either you get sky underexposed as on mine or snow burnt ! I think it's better to get snow ok :mrgreen: I think it's time to think about HDR shots, need to familiarise with that :roll:

This is the best explanation, I can't see any other reason, except for a severe vignetting (but it's not the case here).

I think I would shoot another panorama on the day with the sky correctly exposed and simply replace the sky in the panoramas with this one. A selection with a soft feathered edge would do the trick seamlessly.

This would make for stunning snow fields panoramas.

Different style with that one shot at arrival of a chairlift (too important contrast :( I was in rush as I enjoyed a breakdown of installation to shot and didn't realise I should have shot in HDR :?

I like this one. I'm one who likes a little contrast. This one is a little dark in some areas, but I prefer this over flat HDR.
The hut is the area that I would attempt to lighten up a little. Not much, just enough to show a little more detail.
It is a good composition, well done.
