Although the outcome of the image is amazing...
The greatest reward for me was when I showed this side by side to my wife.
All she could say was :"WOW...this can't be true...it isn't the same image..."
The wonders of image processing:
On the right - the beginning
On the left - After image processing.
I love image processing!!!
