The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. It is in a class of aircraft known as balloon aircraft. On November 21, 1783, in Annonay, France, the first untethered manned flight was made by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d'Arlandes in a hot air balloon created on December 14, 1782 by the Montgolfier brothers. Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than just being pushed along by the wind are known as airships or, more specifically, thermal airships. (From Wikipedia)

This is a superb, straightforward composition. The colors are great and there is a diagonal (or rather two) going through the balloons and the gondolas. This is a very catchy and pleasant picture.

composition and framing are wonderful, I love the sense of depth, the volumes and the feeling of floating gently in the sky. Sharpness, lighting and colours are marvellous. You have managed the contrasts very effectively too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
