It's my first time on this kind a nebulae with some dark clouds.
The challenge was to maintain a good balance of colors and details between nebulae and dark clouds.
I hope you will appreciate.


C'est mon premier essai sur ce genre de nébuleuse possédant des nuages sombres.
Le challenge a été de maintenir un équilibre entre les couleurs et détails entre la nébuleuse et les nuages sombres.
J’espère que vous apprécierez.
