if they are copyrighted, of course you do. And one thing is to take something from google and another one to use a military image

You should think about something in your base pic that you should make the main.
Now whole picture looks so much symmetric, the sight runing around and can't choose beetwen left and right hangars.

I wanted to contrast the cold with the sun and give it a warm feeling, its kinda like an oxymoron.

jaxko, you might want to crop this panorama and focus on only a part of it. It's very hard to judge it otherwise and you won't be able to focus on details if you spread too much

thanks but I decided to crop it down, although the way it was being made it integrated near perfectly thanks to the offset filter :P then put the stitching in the middle and painted over it and offset it back again.
but with it being cropped I have more of a focus.
thanks.
