Orbiting Mars

Here is a new photomanipulation I made today.
We are looking at Mars from a manned spacecraft. The 200km wide view is on Ophir Chasma, a region of Valles Marineris.
With all the Mars trips projects announced or to be annouced these days, we are just a few years away until this picture becomes real.
The photos used for this image are both from NASA :
-The ISS cupola shot during STS-130 (2010)
-Ophir Chasma shot by Viking 1 in 1976

As always, I made the photomanipulation with GIMP on Linux-Ubuntu.

Beautiful! But the glow on the walls of the orbiter should be reddish to reflect the hue of Mars.

@Pierrette et Alain : My wish was to keep a blueish tone inside the ship considering all the screens lighten inside it. Also, Mars has a weak albedo comapred to Earth, so its red tone wouldn't color much the ship's interior.
