Great! I wish those ppl hadnt been in the foreground in the panorama!

Maybe you should decrease the redness of the light? in that case use "levels" in photoshop!



Keep it up!

Marius, if you are referring to the last shot, that's the way it should look, no adjustment necessary.

I like all the shots. I love hot air balloons. There is an annual balloon festival held as part of the Rose Festival in Portland, OR. It is not nearly as big as the ones you read about but it is still great to walk around the balloons as they are inflating and launching. To see the balloons from the middle of the group is spectacular.

They have a night-glo event every night during the festival. There are usually a dozen or so balloons that are inflated and tethered and it makes a spectacular event. I have not seen it in person but I have seen pictures on TV and in the paper. I may try to go this year and get some shots of the glow.

thanks. glowing balloons are a great sight. i just wished they lit more than one balloon at a time so i could have taken the shot at a wider angle to cover them all glowing...

:|Sweet Pic Dude I've gotta try my stiching program out soon! Is there anything I need to know about taking the original pics that will help with the final result other than keeping theexposure locked. I'll be using the program that came bundled with my Panasonic FZ20. I just got it!!! So far I love it.
