Reflecting in Color

Uploaded: September 09, 2005


This image was taken at the Colorado Springs Balloon Classic. This is one of my favorite shots and had to add a creative spin to it. ISO 100, f11.0, 1/125 sec, Sigma 70-200 f2.8 HSM EX. with a Cir. Polarizer filter.
The photograph is unaltered other than making a B&W layer of everything above the water line.

Thnak you everyone for the comments. I just found out earlier this week (tues.) that this image also won the Colorado Springs Balloon Classic 2005 Photo Contest as well as being a finalist here. What a great honor to receive two awards from an image in a one week. Look for this image on after next months awards. This image is also on my website matted at
Sorry for the small self promotion but I am very passionate about my work. Congrats to all the other finalists this month.
