Fantastic! That is some impressive contrast! But I wonder if the sky is too black and some faint detail has been lost.

Thanks, the TIFF is a bit lighter so so it may be a little darker in jpeg mode.  I might go back and be sure what you brought up did not happen.

Very nice image. Can you provide a Hi Res image, because you can tell more about image from HiRes.
