Thank you - those are very generous words. It means a lot when other photographers are moved by your work.
I processed all my shots in Lightroom, with varying degrees of adjustment, though nothing too radical. The last shot stretched the light/dark to about the limit of what's possible in LR. The Black and white conversion of "Another Planet" has a lot of brushwork to add contrast to separate the clouds from the sky. It was shot at about 11am, in full daylight, and is a straight conversion to B+W with the blue channel dropped way down.
It's amazing how much you can do it in LR these days.
