Looks nice but the overexposed sky on the left detracts from the wonderful golden light elsewhere. I'd probably have cropped them out.

Beautiful panorama, agree with Mike but, still would be happy to capture a photo like this !

Thanks for the comments. The Northern Area of Pakistan is safe to visit now and the people in Baltistan are extremely welcoming. The locals are having a hard time now that tourism has dropped off with all the bad press that it is getting lately. I encourage anyone to go there and see the most amazingly stunning pointy mountains anywhere.

Amazing shot - doesn't appear to be over exposed on my monitor.

Thanks Gsum, I think the above are referring to the relative brightness due to the setting sun on the left side of the photo. For a good stitch you need to lock your exposure in manual mode so the camera does not compensate with each photo taken as the brightness changes through a scene. In this case I could have selectively darkened the sky on the left in post work but I really don't like to meddle too much.

Glad you got some good weather. Both times we were there it was practically a white out!

We had mixed weather but were lucky it finally cleared out on our last night at Concordia and the following morning was stunning too.
