In Houston, a large bat colony lives under the bridge at this location. While on a trip to see them exit for the night, I took the opportunity to make a panoram under difficult lighting conditions. Historically, my panoramas have suffered because exposure lock plays hell when there are sharply contrasted areas of light and dark in a composition.

This, I think, is better. It still has some messy bits where overlapping photos had different exposures, but I think it is an improvement that brings out more detail at a cost of overall uniformity of exposure. Thoughts and critiques welcome.
