Description

This is my third time editing this image. I never liked my other versions enough to post them here, but I am very happy with the new result. There are some places I would like to see improved (such as the slight bright ringing from the local support when doing deconvolution). Another place would be possibly either bringing out the surrounding IFN a bit more, or hiding it a bit more. Currently it just looks like a gradient which I am not a huge fan of. Aside from that and a few slight other things, I am relatively happy with this. At least happy enough to share my results compared to the other two :)

Thanks for looking!
