      Description

      Here is my version of the epic fight between LDN 1228, LBN 550, LBN 552 and LBN 555 in LRVB.

      During our stay at the observatory, I had a little bit left over at the end of the night after our collaboration, so I took the opportunity to take a walk in this dusty area of ​​the sky that had been watching me for a while. I was able to shoot it properly during this moonless weekend.

      I really wanted to highlight this epic fight scene between 4 dust monsters, LDN 1228, LBN 550, LBN 552 and LBN 555, that's why I went with this diagonal framing to make it look like one is taking over in this battle.

      I also wanted to respect the natural colors which I find really beautiful and which accentuate the duality with the bluish and orange hues like ice and fire.
