    Question Hot Air Balloon Photo Input Request

    I would like input into this shot. What do you think of it? What could make it better? Is it worth putting more time into editing it? What would you do to it? Any other input? Thanks.

                            I think I would dramatically increase the "glow" of the balloon. You've titled it "at Sunset" so I would expect to see dramatic lighting on the balloon

                            I wish there was the top of a mountain or something in the background for perspective but certainly not missing one to tell the story. Nice shot and interesting vantage point, you must be in another balloon or on top of said mountain.

                            I worked on it with some of your ideas.

                            I was on the ground where it took off and I shot it at 300mm so it was a pretty good distance from me when I took it. So it has that look of almost being eye level. But I was on solid ground in my power chair when I took it. Would be cool to go up in one though. But it is so expensive it will never happen. I agree a mountain would have been nice. But being in farm country, there aren't a lot of hills or mountains around here. A farm would have been nice but it was to high at this point to get that.

                            That adds a lot to it. How do you do that? I assume in Photoshop? Thanks
