[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Troisième photo de la série sur les montgolfières. Heureusement pour le ballon Re/Max il y avait ce phare à brume pour le diriger. :)

Third photo in the hot air balloon series. Fortunately there was that lighthouse to guide the poor Re/Max balloon caught in the morning fog. :)

Minimal PP:
- Cropping to remove any other possible reference to enhance the impression of being lost in the fog;
- Some sharpening;
- A bit of 'curves' enhancement to bring out the colors of the lighthouse balloon
- Resizing for TL

Superb shot Gilles, just brilliant.. lighthouse to guide huh :)) thanks


Great shot. I like the surreal look of the light house in the sky.

Great light and details you've captured.

Super shot!


Hi Gilles,
Very nice capture. I especially like the hint of the other balloon. Cheers, Paul.

Ben il a fallu que je vois la photo en plein grandeur pour comprendre, même dans les airs le phare se marie avec la brume.

Par contre même en présence de brume, je trouve qu'il manque un peu de saturation dans les couleurs.

Brilliant photo...Nice composition...Nice colors...

Haha! Brilliant! A moment well spotted and well captured, surreal and ethereal - I particularly like the glimpse of the other balloon in the cloud.
Good composition, metering, POV.
Well done

Hi Gilles...great picture...I love the clarity of the image with the muted background and slightly visible baloon in the background..nicely done.
