Dear All,

My another try to picture a hot-air balloon but this time I did it captured the balcony of my apartment :)

It was sunset time and the golden light was lovely as it was falling on the yellow and green surface of the balloon. I like the artwork done over that which showed many hearts and a lady bird, thus symbolizing "Love and Luck" together.

I like how the "Love and Luck" were flying high as they stand out so well against a pleasing blue sky.

Hope you enjoy the shot.

Best regards,

The dream becomes reality.
Good luck and happiness, just ask and believe.
The reality overcomes the dream, because he existed before.
Great warm colors of the sun "below.

Hi Paras,
Very neat image with excellent sharpness. Lovely bright colors against the super clean sky!

Hi Paras, another fantastic colorful shot from your balcony (another rent increase !!) You just had the timing right with all the colors of the balloon and the sky so splendid blue .......

Hi Paras,
Splendid colors and a fine composition putting the balloon in the proper position. Nice contrast between the vivid colors of the balloon and the blue sky.
Very neat work.

Hi Paras.

Its always a joy to see a balloon such as this in the sky, an evening sky is best when the sun sinks. This has a wonderful design, the Love/luck theme is a cute idea. tfs

Hi Paras,
Can't think how you could make this any clearer,sharper or better composed,well taken,makes me want to go for a ride on one.TFS

Wow! Love the colors of this balloon against the clear blue sky! Didn't you have clear blue sky in Europe. Details are very sharp and wonderful colors with good saturation. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,
A nice catch indeed. The yellow hangs nicely against the blue. I would have tried the composition with more sky, just to show the infinite sky and the place of the small balloon in it.

Hi Paras,
Very nice caughting of this hot-air balloon well presented,
nice saturation of colors and light,
a sharp and clear details,
well done.

Hi Paras,
It is a fantastic feeling up in a hot air baloon.Pinsharp image with brilliant colours contrastic to the blue sky.
