Keep in mind some of these Hubble pics are enhanced, so to speak. See here for the explanation:

Some features of the Universe are not visible to the naked eye because they are only in spectrums that our eyes cannot deal with.

Which makes the Deep Field that much more awesome, because it's not enhanced, it's just what you'd see if you had super vision. I ordered 10 of those posters from astrosociety.org, I made the mistake of only ordering three of the original Deep Fields, much to my regret. I don't like to make the same mistake twice.
