This was my top pick. I had been viewing this at work to escape the crazy. Just awesome. Congrats on the ribbon.

Two of my favorite things: Sedona and hot air balloons. This is a gorgeous image of both. Congrats on the ribbon.

Wonderful depth and lovely light with the veiled misty look to the valleys and the sun just catching the balloon. Congratulations on the ribbon, Steven.

That balloon adds a bit of magic to the whole scene.
12/07/2012 11:02:28 PM
Beautiful. The landscape alone is great, but capturing the balloon just perfectly pushed this way over the top.
12/07/2012 09:58:04 PM
Such wondrous light. That one single balloon is perfectly suspended in it.
12/05/2012 12:10:06 PM
Wow, would also be a great submission for Proportion. Light seems hard, maybe a bit misty? But nice image, showing the nihility of mankind against nature.
12/05/2012 01:23:20 AM
Would have been great in the Silence challenge as well. Great light.

this is my favorite image of the challenge.
usually, I don't find landscape shots very interesting anymore... but this is more than that.
the hot air balloon adds both vibrant colors AND life to the scene. the mist adds that "early morning" feeling... and the natural light really plays well off of the mountains. beautiful capture!
my highest scoring image in the challenge.
12/04/2012 04:14:57 AM
a simple but nice shot.....
12/03/2012 09:19:46 PM
Nice pop of color!
12/03/2012 05:58:08 PM
What a beautiful shot. What a great way to see the countryside.
12/03/2012 10:13:44 AM
Great shot. I like how the colors of the balloon pop out.
12/02/2012 07:51:13 PM
Wow, you start with a gorgeous scene, and gorgeous light. But then add the pop of the red ballon. A perfect image.
12/02/2012 04:48:13 AM
Beautiful. Light and fogginess and the contrast in the balloon. Lovely
12/01/2012 11:57:00 PM
Emotive and classic solitary peaceful style balloon image. Will no doubt do well.
12/01/2012 06:10:04 PM

great capture, nice colour detail in teh baloon and great light capture with the mist
12/01/2012 10:53:47 AM
Amazing picture! I love how everything is a touch grayed out but the balloon is loaded with color. 10
12/01/2012 08:37:10 AM
That's just about perfect. Love the neutrals and then the POP of color from the balloon. The diagonal line of light/mist is really a lovely addition. :)

Perfect PP for the light and fog
