I combined HaR and HaRL to create this image. HaR for the red layer, HaRL as luminance. Luminance layer was mixed at 40%. Much more and I began to wash out colors.

Unfortunately, I have to disqualify due to the image size being too large. 800 pixels wide is the max. I hate to do this because the image is pretty impressive for being done with a dob and I look forward to future submissions.
