Hey apologize for multiple topics on this object. Seems like I cannot modify/update my original posts.

 

I took advice to go gentler on saturation/noise reduction/HDR, and came out with fairly different results. Core is brighter now but I guess that's just how globalur cluster looks like. I think I did better on the stars now. I like this one (much) better, but I may not know what's best lol.gif .

 

Anyway, C&C welcomed, and thanks for all the help!

 

Full res pic here.

 

And here is the post about the previous attempt (oh man I can't look at it anymore crazy.gif)

I find the resolution better than the other, even if it was already very good in my opinion.

One more iteration of HDR to supress the core. Which is better?

Both are very nice. But the second one shows the propeller better.
