One word Conor - WOW!  Shocked Shocked Shocked

That last one looks really fantastic - reminds me a bit of the cloud structures & colour that we see in close up shots of Jupiter! Where was it taken & was there much post processing involved to get such a superb result?

Thanks dude  Grin

There was a snippet of sharpening due to the crap lens im using and a twiddle of contrast too. It was sitting in my old files, among many others I should really have posted.

Love that beautiful sunset, great cloud structure and colours, excellent result. Also really like the play on the focus depth with the snail, really effective.
