*Revision -B- has a little more contrast enhancement using LR's curves, and is a bit darker as well. Better looking to me. What about you?*
*Revision -C- features severe over-star shrinking/reduction, being almost starless to better show nebulosity and the Milky Way. To me it is far from best, looking overprocessed, but it has an art within. You?*
