Hello All,

again a quick revisit of one of my older targets, but this time tried some other processing techniques. The real challenge were the soft areas with little contrast only. The LUM Raw Stack promised more details which somehow got decreased in the process. Still not sure how to get them into the final image.

Please enjoy.
