Hi bob,

Thanks for your comments. I have adjusted sat and contrast a little bit and then just curves. The light was so special that it really didnt need anything, other than the standard bits to wake up the RAW file. The accompanying Jpeg was perfect straight out of camera.

Thanks,
Adam.

A scene from Genesis third day, after our Lord created the earth and the light, heaven and oceans. It seems that you've attended such a rare spectacle and captured it for us in a dreamy way. Congratulations, Adam (and who deserves more to attend this event than adam)?
