Photographer's shadow in panoramic landscapes...

In my landscapes I usually pay attention not to have my own shadow inside the frame, but with stitched pano this is no always practical or possible:

Desierto de Atacama (Chile)

Salar de Atacama (Chile)

In the first one I could simply crop out the left end of the pano. For the 2nd one, where the shadow is projected in the exact centre, some more critical work of cloning would be required.

But is to remove the shadows actually a good idea? Is the photographer shadow in a desert landscape a disturbing element? or does it add interest? After all, without the photographer (including his shadow!) the image as it is wouldn't even exist!

I will appreciate your comments / opinions.

Also: what about the Sun inside the image?

Best regards.
