Super use of colour and composition!

LOL... I was just about to say this would be a great contender for the current "Rule of Thirds III" challenge... It would seem I missed "Rule of Thirds II", Well done!

Not too shabby for a balloon shot (lived in ABQ too long ;-)! But, really, I love how the two distant balloons balance the near one. Great shot & congrats on a well deserved blue!

Kudos and accolades Mark! I was gonna say YeeeeeeHawwwww, but Rachel used it already. BTW, RKT called me about your Blue Ribbon. Great POV, beautiful sky, and I like yellow and blue.

This is such an excellent shot!! Very Beautiful ~ Congrats on 1st!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2006 04:05:49 PM
This is really, really beautiful, Mark. Congratulations on both your ribbon and personal best! The colors are just wonderful - so very rich. The two baloons in the distance make this image, in my opinion because of the feeling of almost vertigo they add. Wonderful find and even better processing. You knew when was enough and what was just right. That's a really impressive talent. Way to go!! (and a new fave for me)

Yes, same to you, congrats for the ribbon and yes, i can't believe how close we both were to the same score. But your shot definitly out does mine i think.It's more deserving of the blue. Great work and it was pleasure competing against you. ;)
