Hi Mike thanks for your help I'm new to using CS and ACR for editing my RAW files,previously I have used Nikon NX2 but I love the way you can bring back a photo in ACR although it's a steep learning curve.

With this next Panorama I edited the RAW files so the sky wasn't blown out and adjusted the shadows and I used contrast set on 25 in this latest edit. After I stitched the photos I used a ND Filter (Nik Plug-in) .

I tried your settings but I didn't like it as much as mine maybe my eyes are at fault, the 1st photo is using your settings.
