Beautiful black silhouette of the hot air balloon with the mountains at the BG in their golden colors of sunrise
As Simple as beautiful
have a nice end of 2011
See you in 2012, on the leave to Katmandu in 3 days

Lovely image and I suspect there was much more detail in the cloud below the mountain than shows in this version. Unfortunately you have to look hard to see the graduation of colour in this area.
The photo does seem to be a little over sharpened which has resulted in lines above and below the mountain and around the balloon.
Nice work all the same.

Hello Sayeed ,

Simplement magnifique, un moment qui a été sans doute très agréable dans un univers aussi magique.

You end the year with a marvellous shot. It is a magical landscape from above and it was done with a very good composition placing the balloon against the haze to make its silhouette easily noticeable. Very good shot.

It's a very powerful panorama and I like too much the contrast with the silouhette of the baloon.
Happy new year!

Looks like a big bubble on the mountains silently watching the terrestrial activities and above all mundane thing of the world.
We really have to rise above and hope for a better 2012.

wonderful picture with very good atmosphere. The balloon over the mist give very good feeling, the mountain into background and sunset are magnificent.Congratulations.

Very beautiful view on this balloon and the wonderful landscape around. I love the foggy atmosphere and the nice light in the background.

What a great composition and a very nice picture!
However, there is some noise in the clouds and in the fog.
Happy new year.

A beauty again, a majestic beauty with uncluttered lines, and an intense sensation of serenity. I love your compositions that let us breathe deep, like that. I love the light and the minimalism. A surreal feeling, a floating dream...
PS: Sorry I was not very active these last days because I was stuck in bed, with a bad articular inflammation of my left foot.

Timely shot! Lovely photo. Great how one can let the eye stroll from fg to bg, discovering new things to look at at every layer of the skyscape, Nice hard silhouette, it's a much stronger image the positioning of the balloon is superb against the warm bg colours. The graduated colour in particular is stunning.
A pleasure to view. Great,

Lep pogled na balon i staru planinu ...
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lep trenutak.
Sve najbolje za vikend.

Very nice composition of an almost surreal and adventurous landscape. Probably the adventure sensation would have been stronger if we were able to see some people in the balloon.
Thanks and regards,
