You really don't want to get caught trying to get a shot like this.
Taken whilst scouting a location this evening in order to shoot a rare daylight image with an accomplice the following day. I thought I'd try a few test shots to save some set up time, the sun was setting under stormy skies and it felt just right. Sun in one eye and balloon in the other "click" check the display bit of wee for confirmation and it's in the bag during the reconnaissance visit!
Shot in auto mode as it was intended only as a comp prep shot. Nikon 18-200mm at 60mm with CWB @ 2500k and cranked up vivid and saturation settings. Strangely enough the result was the same settings I use for my nocturnal escapades - f5.6 ISO 200 1/125s. Spooky.
Straight out of the camera, no cropping or shopping.
