The Transition From Summer to Autumn

Early morning lighting in the mid-west as the cooler nights set up the morning ground fog in the fields.

Same Balloon

The balloon is the same but the background is different.  There wasn't much of anything but a hot hazy sun coming up that morning just a few days ago.  I started with Lightroom to make a few adjustments.  I didn't realize how bright the background was going to be in the first post as I was concentrating on the flame.  In the second photo the balloon was somewhere in the 45 deg. range or nearly north east.  All I had was a bright blue sky to work with, no texture.  So I did what I wanted to in Lightroom and then moved into On1 Photo10 to add the two different cloud layers.  In this one I even turned the layer about 45 degrees to the right to give some motion to the image.
