    Description

    Well, one star I guess. This was a joy to process until I got to the stars. Tried a semi-tonemap but the little buggers just kept coming back. In a marathon tone mapping session I removed all of the stars and started to like it so I kept going. Could resist adding back that O-type irradiating beauty to complete the scene. Other version is with stars.
