This was one of the most exciting projects for me to work on. Still new to monochrome imaging with a CCD camera, and building SHO palette images.

Plenty "wrong" with this image, mainly the mix of colors (I guess it's a Hubble Palette hybrid?). Probably too heavy on the green for most, but I'm really digging this look.

Anyway, re-uploading my images here was the perfect excuse to take another crack at my data.

Thanks for looking, and happy shooting!!
