Description

Portion of the Large Magellanic Cloud, NGC2020, NGC2014, NGC2040, NGC2032, etc.

The portrait features the giant nebula NGC 2014 and its neighbour NGC 2020, along with other NGC's,
which together form part of a vast star-forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud, 
a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, approximately 163 000 light-years away.

I processed the stars in a separate way and used the Hue tool to sort of fix the lack of colors generated by the HOO blending.
