Wonderful show, with very nice color and detail! I love the inclusion of the trees!

So now you’ve got an eclipse and an aurora under your belt – what next??

Thank you for your comments. My next goal is to become better at PS.


Dan, you’ve got some fine colors here. I like how they’re “shining down” onto the trees. It seems strange to me, but I am feeling like several of the bright stars right next to the left edge seem distractive. :thinking: It was quite the light show!

PS remove tool should take care of those bright distractions. Thanks for noticing.
