The core of the Heart Nebula in SHO.

 

I didn’t get as much time on it as I wanted.  Life, work and weather, but here it is.

Did a couple of tweaks in Photoshop, so it doesn’t look so washed out. 
 

Which you guys prefer?  I like both, and see good in both.  Curious what others think.

Yeah, They are both great. If you want to split hairs, I would go about 3/4 the second image and 1/4 the first.

I think I would agree with you.  When something is working, I sometimes don’t know when to stop.

I think the 2nd one is an improvement over the first. Good image, I like the way you’ve render the scene. Nice round stars, with good colour.

Cheers, Ian
