I saw Jon Bridges' spectacular image of the Soul Nebula, and was inspired by the beautiful colors. I decided to reprocess my own Soul Nebula to see if I could get the colors similar, and this is what I came up with. I realize that there is no comparison between Jon's image and my own, but getting inspiration from others is the main reason why I am here. So thank you Jon!
