This is the strangest life I've ever known.

Okay the words come from Waiting for the Sun, for those who recognise them.

Just had an experiment with the sky in this image. Great fun, pretty hard to stop when you get going, I've probably gone too far. Relatively happy for a first attempt. Many thanks to gupter who pointed me in the right direction.

I'm not sure that we can't see the join, however for a 1st go this is very good. What is great is that you can re-visit this in a few weeks when you have a couple more under your belt and tidy the edges. What I absolutely love here is the red balloon, which for me is the focus of the shot.

Overall I love it.

Its a very striking image and I like it.

But I'm a little unsure about the sky to the left of the tower and just above the horizon, looks cloned to me.
