Lovely pano! The format is perfect for the subject. A wonderful location recorded with great details. Of course it is easier with a ND grad filter. But I'm not sure I agree that the polarizing filter was a mistake. Sure, the extent of darkening varies, but it does to the naked eye, too.

beautifulst landscape. The presence of clouds still values more the photo rendering well the depth and the contrast.

Your image sure shows the vast area, panorama is great to see all the scene. Love the clouds coming at you from the horizon.
i would like to see more details. they are areas (left bottom) of the images to darky.

This is a marvelous panorama, my friend! And the place suits this type of photo so well!
I really like the wideness of the entire scene here and the gorgeous composition that you came up with. The shapes of the clouds are the first to stand out (even in the large photo) and they give the picture its unique character. Further more, i really like the proportions here, with about 1/3 land (with it's great textures and rocks) and the rest a magnificent sky. To me, it's also a very nice factor the distance between the highest cloud and the top of the frame - not too much but definitely not too little either. Very well done!
Oh...and i wouldn't bother too much for using a polarizer...it's fine like this, too.
Bravo and TFS
PS: thanks again for taking the time to make that interesting comparison. I'm very much looking forward for the outcome and i think it will be very useful for all members interested in actually reading the notes and learning something, not just rating photos :) Good luck and i hope it won't take too much of your time.

Splendid landscape taken from an excellent point of view. Perfect framing and wonderful to see it in greater dimensions. Even the clouds have the perfect shape to fit to this marvellous Norvegian paysage. Really well done.

Mooi panorama. Tevens accurate toepassing van de 1/3 regel.
De wolken eisen de hoofdrol op en dat is zeker geen kritiek.
Goed gedaan. Tikkeltje licht op de rotsen in de voorgrond maakt het geheel wat 'geheimzinniger'.
Over de polarizer...interessante opmerking in jouw note.

Truly, one of the best panoramics i've seen here on TrekNature, or perhaps anywhere else for that matter!
An inspired choice and the best one for this type of scene. Personally, i don;t see any problem with the CP here, i think the whole thing is beautiful, really well done Neik.

I hate CP filters... I often see on TN or at my Photo Club beautiful mountain sceneries with incredible deep blue skies as the nature never produces them.
Well, I nevertheless like the picture, it still shows a great landscape that remembers me best souvenirs. I liked the hikes on the Hardangervidda very much although we weren't as lucky as you were with the weather.
Beautiful photo. I love how you cropped the photo and where you put your horizon. Most people would have cropped it right at the clouds. I love how you cropped right above the clouds to show the low cloud cover and the beautiful blue sky. White balance looks perfect. The whites of the clouds are white and the grays are gray. Very well controlled shot. Not to mention the composition works perfect with the large rock in the foreground just off center. Wow!
