Honorable mention for this week's Reader SunShot series "Flight" goes to Nancy Lewis for her picture of a patriotic hot air balloon taken in Steamboat Springs, Colo., during Fourth of July. The picture was taken with a Nikon D100 camera. Here is a critique by director of photography Robert Hamilton. "The photographer demonstrated good instincts in composing this image. By not centering the balloon, the picture becomes more dynamic and visually compelling. Mother Nature also lent a hand by providing the low level clouds, which made the image all the more unusual."
