[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This originally was an entry for a contest of "low key" shots. I feel the subject with the Kings ready to fight is ok, but in the original picture which I entered in the contest I heard that contrast was too low and image in general was too low key. So I decided to change it for TrekLens. What do you think , which one is better ?
Thanks, Jan

I posted a workshop image using the altered image to add Jupiter and some edits. Hope you don't mind. Take care!

Definetky like this one Jan, it has a certain floating cloudy atmosphere yet some depth as well with the glows and white - very nicely done ... Sam
