Looks very good. Do you need to use any special software?

thanks Rob, yes I used Photomatix.

It is High Dynamic Range Carole, basically you take 3 photos, one normally exposed, one under and one over exposed and the software combines all three and takes the best from all three images to produce the final result. It's particularly good for producing dramatic skies where there are bright and dark areas.
Best explained here to be honest https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BZ5BGHl0Xo

You can do it in photoshop and all image processing software but Photomatix dumbs it down and makes it really simple. :thumbsup:

I'll post some more later

I get it, very useful, so you have special software to do it?

I use Photomatix Carole as in the you tube link above.

I suppose the process is just like processing M42 or M31 where there is a high dynamic range.
