I'm working on a large pano that I plan to print and frame as a farewell gift for a friend of mine. I took this nice 21-picture pano of the Koolau mountains on a clear morning (it's usually mauka clouds), but there's some haze affecting the distant mountains.
Working locally, I can correct the colors to make the mountains a vibrant green, but applying that would wreck the foreground. A further complication is the left-side light source, which whitens out the left side.
How can I adjust the image to make the colors even throughout?
Below are some parts of the pano that hopefully illustrate what I need to do. Please ignore the low quality of the jpgs, I had to keep the filesize below 250KB.......
Thanks for looking....
