I think both of your uploads are great! Very nice detail, maybe slightly dark in the background, but very nice nonetheless!
It's a recurring issue of mine if you remember from last time, on the Cygnus Wall edit... 🙂
Ah yes, well it's something I say more often as that's just my personal preference. 🙂 No problem doing it the way you like it best ofcourse!
