Softening transitions between segments in a panorama

My Father asked me to help him stitch together some shots he took while vacationing on the Amalfi Coast in Italy this past October. He was using a Minolta and probably had it set to auto exposure. I played around with the files in PS Elements 8 to level the sea and get the overlap corrected, but I cannot figure out a way to smooth the transitions between exposures. I ran the auto panoramic maker (the name escapes me) but there was not enough overlap to for the software to recognize the individual exposures as part of a connected series. Am I out of luck, or is there was to fix this?
Thanks for everyone's time and assistance!

Have you tried Autostitch? It is a very impressive panorma maker and it is free:

I have used Autostitch and I am very impressed.

I used also the Arcsoft Panora Maker 3 that comes with the Panasonic P&S (I got it with my FZ20). This software has a nice feature called Finetune that allows you to adjust manually where to stich the photos.

Hope that the comment will help...

Did you try the Photomerge in Elements, or were you trying to do it yourself?
