Description

Taken 6/25/15 in San Antonio with over half moon present, The original image was processed by a friend Jay Ballauer who is known all over and has been a guest speaker at the TSP several times and has had his images published in many magazines as well. The data are my originals taken with my equipment by me but reprocessed by Jay to show me how much detail I am losing when I process my own images. It was more of a learning process and fortunately I have someone to teach me how to properly process. The final image is my attempt to process and I think it turned out great except I need to lower the brightness in the center more.
