A framing I've been wanting to try for a while. I love the contrast the dark dust gives off the nebula. After staring at it for hours on end, all I see is a family with a dog, a reindeer and a guy playing basketball.

This may not be the last version. I'd like to get it a bit sharper, and I think that's possible but I'll wait for the C's and C's for that.

A lovely area isn't it? Nice. :) Is that 14x20m not seconds (see Astrobin).

You captured some beautiful detail there, really nice image. This isn't meant as a criticism, but if you want it sharper try some highly targeted curves to increase the contrast ever so slightly. I'd be happy to call it done as it is.
