[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. It is part of a class of aircraft known as balloon aircraft. On November 21, 1783, in Annonay, France, the first untethered[1] manned flight was performed by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d'Arlandes in a hot air balloon created on December 14, 1782 by the Montgolfier brothers.[2] Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than just being pushed along by the wind are known as airships or, more specifically, thermal airships.

Dear Eleu,

This is a splash of colors with such amazing details of this hot-air balloon!
Good sharpness and well caught clarity with nice contrasts existing within the image.
Nice exposure and good management of light in spite of low-light conditions.
Well done!

Kind regards,

Boa tarde Eleu,
Beautiful composition. Pleases me above all the colors own this time.
I feel a great serenity seeing this image captured so well.

Hi Eleu,very good handling of the night light,may I ask what camera mode you used, Manual,Aperture or ? Whichever you captured it's spot on. I like how the burner lights up the balloons colouring in stages,with of course the nearest to the flame being the more dominant colouring & the warm reflection of it on the ground.The foreground subjects are easilly recognizeable,even the moutain range beyond the street lamps.
No critiques on how to improve this one from me.TFS

Good focus and mood...I like these ballons. A good Nocturne.
Um abraço

Taking the shot in blue hour has provided some lovely contrasts. Your pov really highlights the size of the balloon. Nice job

Hi Eleu...beautiful exposure and focus...nice tones and colors. Nice work.


Hi Eleu, a bit more colourful than the ones we get around here. They usually just having the logos on them. Nice the way the flame if changing the tones on the way up. Fiona

Good exposure, depth of field and composed very well. You have caught the scene very well.
