That's got to be a seriously fun gig, and an amazing experience in person.

The shot works, but I think I'd go a lot brighter -- as in, at least a few stops brighter. I'm guessing the rocket is moving pretty slow that close to the ground. I don't see any motion blur at 1/1000s and not much noise at ISO 800 and no signs of too shallow a depth of field at f/6.3, so you had plenty of room to brighten it up.

I've taken the liberty of fooling with it in ACR; attached is my rough interpretation. Obviously, starting with the original raw file instead of a JPEG would give better results.

Cheers,

Nice edit of the shot.  The only time I've done that, I got my head bitten off and ganged up on !!
