Wow, you're a brave man Dave. It was -10 C in Weymouth that night!!
But a really great shot of a beautiful crater. Thanks for sharing.

Cracking image Dave.

I've been playing with your image in CS4, there's a wealth of detail on here waiting to be etched out :wink:

Hi Eddie,

Thanks for the comment :)
Will be interesting to see the results of your 'play' with the image.

All the best

Hi Eddie,
Thanks for that, you've certainly brought out more contrast and it seems to have more 'punch' about it. Thanks for taking the time to have a play around with it (will post another one later from the same session :wink: )
Al the best

Hi Dave,

Unfortunately I couldn't do any sharpening. Just very slightly out.
Its a personal preference as to how much contrast is to be amended. I usually just tweek until the softness is "lost". Ofcourse, you cannot get out of a picture what isn't there. You captured some great detail there. Especially in the crater escarpments.
