Finally got around to processing this image from an older set. Hooray for finally making my way through! This one gave me a ton of issues in terms of how to tackle colors. I'm always struggling with narrowband colors. Straight SHO with removing all the green and magenta to give you a nice pure gold and cyan image is great and all, but it just seems so bland is too easy. Hopefully this is a nice medium though. Closer to red with some yellow and dark rich blue instead of cyan.

The struggle for narrowband colors I enjoy continues!
