What To Do With Gray Skies

With a subject like the balloon race, my solution was to screw on a telephoto, get in close and then pump some steroids into the pictures with Photoshop. The bottom two pictures give you a sense of scale of the aircraft.

Fabulous, so glad you included the men handling the balloons, they are so HUGE..and colourful, not much you can do about the sky Bob, but really you don't even notice them, the balloons are pretty spectacular.

Thanks for the photos. I particularly like the last one, both for the colors and the perspective.

I actually hate grey skies, but with so much colour here, who cares! :-)

Your first image is the one that really appeals to me today.
