I put this 2.5 Gb image together using the PS CS5 Merge and 50 separate 16 Mb images. I tried the MS Ice software and it didn't come close to the PS results.

I look that this picture 8 times a day, amazed that PhotoShop could do that so accurately.

...well, I'm still not the thread starter, but the example You provide is probably a good representation of what could be relevant for the thread starter...

...anyway, thank You for the detailed description of a timeless, pleasant picture of pure nature...

...without dull flat walls!

...but with obvious stitching flaws in the lower right corner (the unsharp rock) IMHO.

However, I must admit that the rest of the picture is way better stitched than the most (high praised) panoramas which are regulary shown.

The choosen perspective with lot's of fine detail in the far background and maybe too sharp edges looks a bit unnatural, but helps to draw the attention of the viewer...

...especially because of the unsharp rock in the foreground, so that I would try to optimise the rock in the foreground a bit, due to it's relevance for the whole picture.

If You can handle my somehow nitpicking and sometimes harsh critic and allow me to show You the artifacts on Your example, I'll take the time to show the flaws in a few days.

Btw.

in the (middle to right) background near the mountain tops are some uneven sharpness transitions visible - even in the 1600 pix view...

...so, no cigar yet, but nearly a cigarillo.
