Very nice Mick! I like your subtle processing.

Beautiful Mick! I love it!

Despite M42 being one of the most photographed target, I still love seeing them. It is a challenge to process and everyone has their own signature looks. I like this one because it is subtle, a little muted and even has a bit of a “haunted” feel (if there is such a thing in AP). Sometimes this is the best way to really show the details of your image. Really nice work Mick.
