Though technically you might say "especially" in space, because the contrast doesn't get much higher than black OR white. High contrast scenes aren't just a problem for us Earthbound photographers (be it film or digital). It's also a problem for scientists! Check out this interesting, cool article.

Four times a year, the Cassini mission releases a pile of science data to NASA's Planetary Data System. I'm a little late to the January release, and still haven't worked through all the neat images I found. In fact, the very first image I downloaded presented an interesting challenge to my image processing skill. Before I maunder on for too long, here's the result of my efforts.
