Description

I revisited this target  as the FOV was quite larger when compared to the last time I shot it. 

Previous version

While I loved the reddish hue I brought out last time, I went with subtle color variations in this one. It was fun to process. 

I will save you all on notifications with an extended title of this image as there are too many. 

Hope you like the result. Clear skies!
