At 4' X 4' it is a small target.

You have done well Reggie, there is lots of good data there.

I would suggest you play around with different processing techniques and it will get even better.

I have found that too much saturation can cause 'texture' to appear.
Pay careful attention to the stretching (I do it in stages).
