With all the great photos of the great Orion Nebula being posted recently, this humble effort of mine seems a bit redundant. However, probably what sets this apart (a little) is being able to reveal the darker dust clouds around the nebula despite the fact that all the images were taken with an unmodified DSLR. It took a fair bit of processing (which is why it may seem a bit over-done), and you can see at the top and bottom left the bias noise sneaking through even though I used bias frames during stacking - pretty much stretched it to the max.
