M42 - Digital Rebel

Very well done! Nice processing and color balance, to my old eyes. I like the "natural" feel to the shot.

Great work with the stock Rebel, also. Keep it up!

Very impressive, Ivan. And, as mentioned earlier, do play around with different variations of wavelet processing. All it costs is time and you'll gain tons of knowledge.
