Hot Balloon Rally by Peter Cheung

October 2019 - Hot Balloon Rally

About the Image(s)

: This picture was taken at the Prosser Hot Air Balloon Rally last month. The hot air balloon festival is an annual event in Prosser, Washington. Balloon pilots from all over the Northwest converged on Prosser to participate this annual balloon rally. The sky of that morning was windy so, unfortunately, all balloons were not flying. Instead, the pilots inflated their balloons and let us take photos closely. The camera settings are Nikon D810, Nikon 14-24mm, f/6.3, 1/800 sec, ISO-800, 23mm. In post-processing I need to brighten up the shadow, increase the tonal and color contrast.

An image with a dramatic atmosphere of a good journalism shot. The people are intent on preparing the balloon, the vignette draws the eye to the fire making it the point of interest. The stormy looking clouds and the blend of rich colours add to the drama of this image.   Posted: 10/19/2019 03:58:37
