This is just stunning. The colors are so soft and muted and the perspective is of course totally unique. I almost would have liked more contrast and darkness in the shadows for a bit more roughness....it's so soft. It's a lovely image for sure.

It's a brilliant photo but wish to understand how it qualifies for 'Empty Background' contest. The background shows sand dune activities in clarity. So background is certainly not empty.

Balloon? Parachute? or a Satellite against a desert moon? Almost abstract...the ambiguity drew me in to inspect. Congrats.

Behind The Lens

Location

Balloon ride over the desert in Dubai.

Time

This was just after sunrise.

Lighting

All natural light from the sun coming up.

Equipment

Canon T5i with a Canon 18-200 zoom lens.

Inspiration

I was taking a lot of pictures of the sunrise, and we happened to go over the other balloon in the tour. I thought it was an interesting shot to get it from above and the natural light was perfect.

Editing

Just did a very basic enhancement in windows photo editor.

In my camera bag

Canon T5i with an 18-200 Canon lens and a Canon Rebel converted to infrared with a Canon 18-135 lens.

Feedback

If you take a balloon ride, take pictures in every direction.
