From the advice I recieved from my first post of this photo I decided to rework it. (Thanks Daniel!) I started with the original raw 2 shot stack and applied Sean Walker's vignetting removal technique (9/01 S&T), then reset the black point and played around with the curves and levels in Photoshop. The results seem to be much better but I would like to hear everyones opinions.

You can see the original posted under "NA Nebula" on 5/23.

Thanks for looking, Robert.

Looks much better, much more even, and I like the color! Looking at the histogram there is still some room for contrast improvement. The image is somewhat flat and there is a lot of dead space in the histogram that should be filled up. Reset the dark point a bit dark to bring the shadow end of the histogram as far left as possible without clipping it. This should increase the contrast of the nebulosity.
