A Perseid meteor, after processing and cropping.
Canon 350d, Olympus 50mm lens, ISO 400, 15 sec, f/1.8

This is my first dSLR astro photo, and my first attempt at removing light pollution by processing. I used four images from around the same time to make a “pollution image” by taking the minimum value of the images at each pixel, which removed all the stars. I then subtracted this from the main image, and boosted the contrast.
