I agree with you László, it's promising. I'd like to have some more photos taken of this location but they have to be shot in consideration of all the basic rules of panorama-photography which can be read on my sites, e.g.

http://sceneries.jimdo.com/aufnahmetechnik/

The main mistakes which I've seen very often:

-- Too many images
-- Missing images
-- Tilted images
-- Too high ISO - therefore grainy pictures
-- Too much automatic features enabled - manual aperture and exposure are a "must have"
-- No panoramahead used - resulting in many parallax-errors which lead to bad stitching
-- Many sensor dust-spots
-- Shadow of photographer can be minimized by remote control release
-- All images in jpg - RAW is much better
-- All images in landscape-format - portrait-format is better
-- Horizontal rotating in anti-clockwise-direction (clockwise is better for PTGUi)
-- No CA-adjustment before stitching (eliminating Chromatic Aberration is better for exact control-point-creation)

How the scenery looks like with shadow can be seen in my first testflight here:
