Thanks everyone....the irish Baloon Championships will be back in Kilkenny in September and it is well worth a visit.
Beautiful colours and patterns.
This would be my pick-of-the-day (totd) if i had a say in that.
You've been Twittered: http://twitter.com/pixie/statuses/2948426498
Powerful colours! It has a Lucas Arts feel like many of your shots. What software do you use to create the vibrant colours?
Lovely colours. Congrats on the TOTD.
well done on the twit!
Thanks everyone for the comments and thanks for The Twitter as well...the software I use is CS3 but here not much was done really...it was taken in Lismore Castle at dawn and the sun was coming up behind the balloon which really helped emphasise the colours...gave it a slight crop on the end and a contrast boost and colour boost...not much else really....just the idea worked that I had in my head which was to show the scale of balloon and man....thanks again to all.
love it , great idea ,colours are fantastic
Nice one Noel, well done.
well done on the totd.......
Great shot.... love it..!
Thanks again...nice colours alright.
Great pic, great light, and the 'baloon man' adds the X facxtor!
Thanks...he added that extra dimension alright...wide angle lens and flash to light up the front part and the morning light did the rest.
Really like this one too and the colours really make it a feel good shot for me.
Thanks Kathleen...I said earlier that the balloons were back in Kilkenny in September...its acually on in Waterford again.
Looks like some great Photo oppertunities between the 20th and the 25th of September.http://www.waterford-today.ie/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=6456&Ite...
This is really beautiful. I love the strong vivid colours - the sun was in just the right place!
Thanks Margaret...it was a lovely morning alright.
Your idea worked brilliantly! Baloon looks huge!! Love the strong colours!
Thanks Susie...the balloon was backlighted by the rising sun and I used a flash on the camera to light the foreground...it worked also because and I know he wo'nt mind me saying it but the guy in the balloon who acually owns it is a very small man and it really made the balloon look even bigger with him inside.
the succes-story continues noel, shortlisted for pixie's 09!
Glad this shot made it into the 09 list. Perfect and flawless in every way! Ticks all the right boxes. Nice meeting you briefly at the SACC Print Comp. V.
