You are good photographer, and these panos are quite nice.
Here is some criticism: There is visible grain, even small/sized on computer screen (Bottom 2 pics in particular). Noise manifests itself in low light conditions & in shadows. Not sure what camera these were taken with, but I'm guessing phone or pocket / small sensor camera. They will compensate by bumping ISO in low light to avoid camera shake, and this comes on expense of noise. How to avoid this? Shoot manual with low ISO, but need tripod because of longer exposure time.
Also some pics are too dark; general challenge when shooting sunsets or sunrises. These conditions require multiple exposures (some for shadows, some for highlights), then blending in image editing software. All of this is naturally difficult when one hikes (or skis) and basically stops just to snap a pic & doesn't have time or will to mess with all of the above. But it is great fun trying to nail it
