water landing by Celashan water landing by Celashan
This picture was taken during "Les Montgolfiades de Metz", a hot-air balloon event, over the roofs of Metz, France (september 2009)

The starting point was next to a water spot in the middle of the city. Just after the take-off, some balloons pilots played to come very close to the water.. and sometimes so close that passengers were forced to have a foot bath .. ;)

----
taken with a Canon EOS 400D
Exposure: 1/500s
Aperture: f/6.3
Focal Length: 200 mm

the picture was cropped and colors rehanced
i played a little with the curves

thanks for your appreciation ! :)

I finished (finally) the Soft Pastel artwork... I Will be uploading it soon and link your original photo to my artwork.

I loved to do the rainbow balloon, really contrasted against the dark background... it was a cool photo to draw... and I had to use a blue support, or I would've wasted my blue chalk :D

Just... one question... that part of the balloon, on the very top of the picture... it is Blue or orange?? is it the lighting which does that effect? (the weird colored part on top of the rainbow colored part of the balloon)
