Hot Air

Hot Air

A common sight in Melbourne is the pre-dawn migration of Hot Air balloons over the city – reaching the center around sunrise. I have promised myself (and my Mum) a trip in one of these soon – can you imagine the fantastic shots you would get?

This one passed through the two sky-scrapers directly in front of my apartment. I had the camera ready just in time.

Crop, Rotate, Levels, Curves, Hue/Sat, Dodge and Burn, Noise Reduction, Vignette, Minor cloning.
