Alex, they both came out well. They look great. Did you do filtering, and if so, what was it?
I know the sun star shot was shot without any filters. I am not sure about the other one. I should have kept better notes but it was a little tough with this backpacking thing. I think once I have a chance to process the other sheets I might have something to compare the images with and would be able to figure out which ones were shot with filters (I hope...).
Thank you all for the kind words!
