Backdropped by a colorful Earth, this full view of the International Space Station was photographed by a crewmember onboard the Space Shuttle Discovery following the undocking of the two spacecraft. Discovery pulled away from the complex at 2:24 a.m. (CDT) on August 6, 2005. Credit: NASA

This is a nice shot of the station (S114-E-7218 right?) but to maximise its impact I would have saturated it a little more and made the ISS more central - there's some room to manoeuvre on the original from what I remember...

Considering that this photo wasn't taken by you, i'd say whoever took it did a very wonderful job!

I don't get this posting photos taken by other people...what is the point? Did you optimize it or contribute to it in any way? This is a place to disply your own art, not government pictures.
