Quote:Nice work Jason. Your hues and intensities are first rate. A lot of intriguing details in that rich image. The whole piece is one refined success and reflects the true visual experience with fidelity. I used to think seeing tossed up better moments of 10/10 seeing if even quickly but I've come to believe the laminar airflow needed ho truly produce 10/10 seeing can only be realistically supported by at least 8/10 seeing as opposed to say, a 5 Pickering seeing sky interspersed with 10. I think seeing can give the illusion of excellence even if its just 7/10 seeing on a 5/10 night by virtue of relative calmness and contrast enhancement. When 10 finally hits and its really ten for me its just short of a religious experience with contrasts I hadn't even delivered possible . Lol it's been too long.One of your best Jason. Really an exquisite piece.Pete
