A Winning Image

I was excited to have this picture win an honorable mention in my camera club last week:

ISO 800 50mm -0.33 f/16 1/400

ISO 800 50mm -0.33 f/16 1/400

I gave the original photo information in the caption above but this is an HDR image that I created in Photomatix.  The day of the Forest Park Balloon Festival the sky was pretty bland all day.  It was a bit nicer right as the sun was setting.  Using Photomatix really helped make the sky more interesting.
