This is a picture of NGC 4631 commonly known as the Whale Galaxy. I tried to get the tidal tails in the background due to gravitational pull from either local Dwarf Galaxy or interaction with galaxy NGC4656. Due to all these interactions the galaxy has a lot of dust and new star production so tried to get the colors right to show all this activity.
