    So I went to an annual Cincinnati event tonight. They have a bunch of hot air balloons in a local park at the edge of a reflection pool. Here's what I came back with this year:

    For some reason #5 doesn't look in focus, When looking at the actual image on my monitor though, it is in focus. It must be somthing to do with the resizing from photobucket

    Sooo pretty. That first one (corrected!) is the absolute winner.
    The yellow colours (with red and more, of course) against the blue of the sky and its reflection in the water complement each other perfectly. What a sight to see. Thank you for letting us take part in it from afar!!!

    Check out http://www.meetup.com/OVCC01/. That's for Ohio Valley Camera Club. They keep up on most of the events going on in Cincinnati that photographers might be interested in. Good group of people too.

    Nice shots.
    In particular I like your edited version of the first shot. You might want to clone out the tower, as its angle sort of draws the eye a little.
    Nice work.
