Here’s some of the many steps for how my newest APOD image was created. Sort of documentary since it appears everyone now fears “fake” pictures. I also included a close up of me in the SUV playing Angry Birds while the shot was taking place. Hey it was cold, windy, 1:30 in the morning and really damp out 🙂
My final version. A bit darker than the APOD image and therefore the colors saturate more. Also a bit more contrast so the image will print well on aluminum.
