B

Reprocessed in HDR using Photoshop CC.

C

Increased local contrast, reduced noise & color blotches.

D

Reprocessed to bring out more of the dust lanes. Tried my hand at Astro Pixel Processor software for processing the data.

E

Enhanced local contrast, enhanced reds in the Running Man nebula, reduced color noise in RGB channels.
