Ready For Flight
Photograph - Digital Art
During the Crown of Maine Balloon Festival I am always looking for the unusual or an object to create art from. This image of the ReMax Balloon presented a very interesting composition as it was still tied to the ground and was giving a lifting ride for the spectators. What a thrill it is to slowly ride in this beauty and view the ground below you.
Once a year the Balloon Festival is held in Northern Maine and the view from above is spectacular as you ride accross the landscape below you which is filled with lakes, rivers and the forest.
Flying in these glorious hot air balloons offers moments for photography that are very exciting and can easily take your breath away. An adventure everyone should try at least once! Photography by Gary Smith.
I created this image by using 5 exposures then combining them in Photomatix which resulted in this HDR, (High Dynamic Range) then I used some textures I've created in Photoshop.
