Peter--Yes, excellent point about the DOF. It's easy for me to remember that I can sacrifice Aperture in favor of shutter speed when in a plane but the balloon was up and down enough that I worried a little. In some cases we were fairly low but in hindsight on average we were plenty high enough for me to have used a larger aperture without worry.
And to the anonymous comment about Velvia, I've shot plenty and while it does do a good job of not blowing out highlights because of the smooth "shoulder" in the response curve, it would not have captured the details in the shadows that I got using HDR.
@All--Thanks for the comments and feeback!--David
