One of the most remarkable displays of raw power I've seen. The reflection off the water is a nice touch.

So where do you upload all of your NASA photos from? I like them.

That's a gorgeous photo, Phil.

Care to share what you employed in the post processing? Going to take a guess that Tiffen entered the editing suite?

+favs for me.

nope - no real work apart from noise removal and alignment alterations - the colours are as they are out of the can/in-camera image processor.

Thanks, satisfied my curiosity ... and ... in turn, kept my wallet somewhat fatter.

:oD

Simply don't recall seeing the colours as 'intense' (for lack of better descriptor ... and given that I am currently sleep- and caffeine deprived :oP), from other launch photos/images.

It really is a gorgeous shot. And nice work on the cleanup stuff. Great amount of detail still present.

well - there are usually around 30 different still cameras at various locations around the launch so I guess that is why you often see a varied array of colour and detail from the same launch. the cameras close to the tower itself for instance look completely different due in no small part I imagine to all the extra light around there :-)
