    Description

    My most ambitious project to date, started in south of France, continued in Portugal and completed in Belgium... I hope to bring my western veil to the same level... in due time, if patience doesn't leave me all together ! Then rest a bit !
    Among other difficulties, I had huge issues with noise residue and spent hours manually cleaning what could not be with mere dark technic. This brings my admiration to a higher level in front of those who come up consistently with high level of image quality ! Insane amount of dedication.

    > B VERSION : Hue to +180, saturation - 12 "et voilà!" a dream like version of some sort of ice mountains floating in a see of fire :-) OK, this is no orthodox version, but it makes me day dream... and after such a long editing process, to come up with this B version in less than 5 minutes ! Ha ha
