HDR panorama

Pauline and I were at Downtown East for her school cheerleading event. While she attended to her school kids, I took the opportunity to take a couple of photos with the intend of making a HDR panorama. The result is shown below:

The images were bracketed at 2 EV apart for 5 images and 7 different images taken with overlaps. The images were then loaded into Autopano Giga 3 for the stitching and HDR. Not a bad first attempt. There were some artefacts in the sky probably due to the differences in exposure. Autopano Giga 3 is dead easy to use. The following is another HDR done in Nik HDR Efex Pro 2.

The HDR effect is a lot better here. Seems that a dedicated HDR software is still better.
