Last summer my husband proposed to me in a hot air balloon in San Diego. I took this picture right before he popped the question! Increased saturation, highlight, brightness, and contrast.

Talking about breathtaking images. Here a great one. Very romantic of your husband, I think he wants to be closer to heaven, to make sure you'll say YES. The photo is very beautiful, great work with the tools. Do not look at it for more than 2 minutes, you may pass out, LOL.
