Balloon Festival Setup

Heres an old shot from my files that dates way back to 2005. This was taken during the Tigard Festival of Balloons. One big mistake I made was that I took all my photos using only the .jpg setting in my camera. A HUGE mistake. I should have used RAW or RAW + JPG when taking my images that day. The reason for that is because RAW contains much, much more information about an image you capture, its as close to the digital equivalent of a negative as you can get. Fortunately, technology has caught up with my mistakes of the past and allowed me to create this image. Using specially created software that produces HDR images, I was able to align 3 different images that were exposure bracketed, then I was able to blend them together.
