It's a while since I took a shot of the world's largest mirror ball (my previous shots are here and here) and as neither of my previous attempts have included the whole ball I thought I'd put this one up.

As for how this was processed: basically this is almost a straight shot, but I did drop the brightness of the sky, increased the overall saturation, and upped the contrast a little. What I particularly like is the contrast between the drab greyness of the sky in the background and the reflected blue sky and clouds in the ball.

Update: Having just taken a look at Jon's latest entry I thought I might as well join in and submit this shot to this week's Photo Friday challenge – Radiant – as, like him, I don't expect to see too many radiant skies over the coming months.
