I was fortunate enough to catch the launch of the shuttle Endeavour last weekend. What an experience! This was the last night launch and I believe there are only 4 more shuttle launches left. Now that Constellation is cancelled, no more manned space missions for the USA. Boo! If you get the opportunity, get to a launch! The Space Center is also very cool. Definitely check out the Apollo IMAX presentation. Goosebumps and emotions! Man that stuff excites me!

RAW/NEF editing: white balance set to 2900K, horizon correction, crop.

Photoshop editing: curves (med contrast), vibrance +36, clone out glare, add contrast to shuttle, resize, flatten, Neat Image, save.
