The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. It is part of a class of aircraft known as balloon aircraft. On November 21, 1783, in Paris, France, the first untethered manned flight was performed 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)

I never expected that such big balloons could be so close together when they take off. Awesome picture. The flame emphasizes the brightness of the yellow fabric. Really lovely, and surely makes me want to try ballooning some day.

Excellent view upwards of these ascending balloons.
A very well-balanced picture with parts of the three balloons.
Best regards, Paul

A superbly colorful and eye-catching photo. The POV from below gives us a very good look of the nearest gondola and the fire heating the air inside it. The positions of the three balloons give a good rhythm to the composition.

Hi Eleu - perfect POV for this shot, looking up into the balloon itself! Bright, gorgeous colors throughout with a beautiful glow from the main subject there. Wonderfully done!

the colours of your picture are extremely attractive. There's a delightful and effective distinction between the sunlit and the shady parts. A wonderful graphical scene with a random and interesting arrangement in a vertical frame. I also like the perspective and the play of shapes, the lightness of the balloons and the feeling of anticipation as they are rising up in the sky. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Vivid and cheersful colors of the Baloons against the blue sky, Eleu.
Yet a vibrant texture as the baloons flew and moved upwards.

Red as we all know always brings lot of life live and this shot has no exception, lots of red and yellow combinations with other fresh complementary colours. The impressive viewpoint can only suggest of shooting position that possibly you are airborne - I may be wrong- but the result is remarkable. The extra balloons add depth and perspective, and the contrast to the blue is jaw dropping blessed by such brilliant side lighting, Bravo!!
