M16 Eagle Nebula was created by woodwizard

In one of my other image posts a challenge of imaging the Pillars of Creation came up. Well this is my best of M16 to date. Need to go back and add more exposure time.

Best I could get from this image. Crop from 50% resolution image and ran thru PS-CS again and Neat Image.

That's a wonderful image Tom.
The softness and sharpness of the nebula is magic, the colour is also well done!
