Description

My first ever "editable" picture. It's been a long learning curve. Ha Taken from my roof top in Melbourne Australia. LRGB taken 2.5 hours west in country Victoria in 21.8 skies. Never processed anything before thanks to all the "youtubers" out there and instructional books.

Hope its not too dark. Please provide feedback. Thanks to Roberto for your imaging tips.
