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
Focal Length: 200 mm
the picture was cropped and colors rehanced
i played a little with the curves
thanks for your appreciation !
