Balloon Glow

After we got home from Renaissance Festival on Saturday I had just enough energy left to go to the Ballunar Liftoff Festival at NASA Johnson Space Center for a little while. One of the most popular events at the Ballunar Liftoff Festival is the "Balloon Glow" where all the ballooners fire their heaters at the same time (theoretically) so you can see all the balloons glowing from the flames at once.

Title: "Balloon Glow"

Shot data: 1/40s f/5.6 at 17.0mm iso640
Camera / Lens: Canon 40D / Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom
Post-processing: Adobe Camera Raw > Photoshop CS3 > Topaz Adjust

Nice composition Barry. To me the people in the foreground make the shot. It puts the emphasis on the event aspect of the photo.

Thanks Larry!

I really like the people in the foreground as well. This was a no look shot holding the camera above my head which made the perspective turn out really nice.
