ATV-5 seen docked to Space Station

Very nice image acquired 13 February by Ralf Vandebergh, in The Netherlands. Ralf writes:

I took this last Friday but in very turbulent windy conditions. It was impossible to obtain an image of the ISS that was sharp over the entire ISS structure because of partial distortions caused by the air turbulence. So what do you do in such a case? Answer, searching for parts in frames where the partial area of the docked ATV is minimally disturbed by turbulence. The result is not bad for the circumstances, I think.
