*Revision -B- is the same as -Original-, but with more sharpness. In my computer screen, the fullsize TIFF, and even the Small JPEG, looks MUCH better than the version in Astrobin. ***I do feel like Astrobin reduces image quality/clarity/sharpness, and so I have to "overprocess" the image for it to look better. I recommend you to open the full size, as it looks better than the version displayed on the webpage with the details. Has anyone had this problem?*
