IC 1274 by James Fordice
Prize: 25 credits

Comment from the judges: This image of IC 1274 by James Fordice has been well-balanced with an excellent choice of colour palette.

Expert Tier


IC 1274 by Michelle Ashford
Prize: 50 credits

Comment from the judges: Michelle Ashford created our winning one-click expert image with great attention to detail and sharpness within the nebulosity. The fainter nebulosity has been brought out well, paying attention to not brightening the background.

Beginner Tier


RCW19 by Judith Prana
Prize: 75 credits

Comment from the judges: Judith Prana has created our winning bundle beginner image with a great custom HOO tri-colour blend. This has created great contrast and colour within the nebula. The stars have a blue hue; processing these separately would solve this.

Expert Tier


RCW19 by Dan Thompson
Prize: 100 credits

Comment from the judges: Dan Thompson's image of RCW19 is our winner for the expert bundle competition. The focal point of the nebula has excellent contrast with good colour features.


Let’s give a round of applause to all the winners who will enjoy the honours and the prizes!
