Wish i could say i took this but i can't. A friend of mine in America took this and then sent this for me to have a play with in Gimp. To be honest, i did not have a clue to what i was doing but played around with the curves and layers to bring out the red. Saturation and hue was decressed a little and then put unsharp mask on the final layer. Had a few goes and in the end went for the pretty version,LOL. Alot of learning still to go but i was happy with the result.
When i can i will put up the details of the equipment used by Rick to capture this object.
