Day 1 at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and I am already offended! Aperantly Nikon is a major sponsor of this even so every where I go I have to see Nikon flags. Not only that, I have to walk around with Nikon around my neck :evil: Didn't they get the word I shoot Canon!! :lol: Just kidding

You can always scrub out the Canon lable and replace it with Nikon, then you would fit in. :wink:

Here is a quick selection, the rest will have to wait until later :) Weather doesn't look like it will work for tomorrow morning either. Will get up at 3:30-am again and see. Wife is going to skip this round.

I agree with the above, #2 is my favorite with the golden colours. I see from the exif you used manual white balance, what did you choose.


Cheers

Thanks for the comments. At night i use sunlight as my white balance so it stays kinda neutral then i correct in raw or lightroom.

I have a bunch from this mornings launch (that was a cluster) but i'm taking a brake from the ride home. Should have them posted sometime tomorrow
