David Wrench: For me, this entry is in a class of its own. Not only is it a high quality image, but it addresses the subject of the challenge most directly. Both the shape and the texture of the land resemble a planetary surface in miniature.
I appreciate your nice comment David.Have a nice day,Mario

thejohnnerparty: The colors are amazing. OOC or PP?
Hello John,1 warm filter with mask, 1 cold filter with mask, both in soft light. Dodge and burn plus sponge on grey layers. Sharpness with high pass, desaturate and applied levels on the high pass. Some other PP using luminescence mask with information taken from the channels. Not exactly SOOC!Have a nice day.Mario
thejohnnerparty: Nice shot. Can you tell us about this? Look very interesting.
Hello John,If you have the time, Google Color Me Rad. See some more pictures in my gallery.Have a nice day.Mario

Robert Newman: This is roughly a 12.6 inch telescope. A used Celestron 14" Schmidt-Cassegrain without mount can be had for roughly $6K. While an f11 optic, it has considerably more light-gathering capability (23%) than the $33 f8 lens featured and is a fraction of the cost. As for the $180K used Canon telephoto, you can buy a large refractor scope tube assembly of similar size and f-ratio optic for $25K or so although you would have to wait for the right deal (i.e., no mount).
I agree with you Robert. Both have the same Schmidt-Cassegrain design. The 14" Celestron can also be use with a 0.7x focal reducer for a 2700mm f8 as a result.
LeeStar: A shell.
ShKen: Liked it very much!
Thank you ShKen, I am going back to Nepal next month...can't wait!Have a nice day,Mario
