Painted Water   Featured in PhotoFlash #097
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Painted Water
Painted Water
This is a hot air balloon reflection on our lake in Lake Havasu City during the Hot Air Balloon Fest. This is not a filter, the only editing done was slight saturation to bring color out a tad more. Otherwise..it is what it is!
