Description

Same collection as M66 (same FOV) but different color processing. Smaller galaxy and less detail, but worked with the LUTs again.

This LUT started with "Creamy Split Toning"... yes that is right on the name... to split out the blues.

The process starts in Photoshop,
goes to 3D_LUT to do the tone mapping,
then the modified image comes back to Photoshop as an adjustment layer.

Here I added about 60% of the LUT as an adjustment to the original RGB.
