Two shots in this competition with the title "Dawn Patrol," cool!. Awsome composition. Lovely lighting. Balloons can move fast. Nice capture, crabappl3.

A winning comp with great colors and a good sky as the backdrop. Bumping up.

I really like the graphic feel of this photo. The shaded color of the sky with the bright balloons against it is very very nice.

It's not typically what you think of as stopped motion unless you've seen a balloon race. :) The lighting here is excellent with a very well done gradient. The framing just makes the shot for me. 10

Great colors and I love the composition. But hot air balloons are generally thought of as placidly floating, making them a poor subject for showing stopped motion.

Great Photo, if not the perfect choice for demonstrating stopped motion :-)

Great colors! and the sky is not boring

This is a beautifully colored photo, but not a very challenging subject for a stopped motion challenge.
09/24/2004 07:51:29 PM
ohh! very nice!!

I'm not sure it's a really good subject for the challenge (I mean, they aren't exactly speedy objects that have to be captured at a lightning fast shutter speed)... but this is an otherwise AWESOME shot! I love the colors!

Beautiful composition. Love the blue sky and color gradients between balloons. I wonder, were the foreground balloons grounded and you waited patiently for balloons to pass? Good capature -8-

Did you have problems with motiontrails?

hehe, just kidding, love the colors :)

I rated you higher than the other hot air balloon image because I really love the composition and the colors of yours. The problem for me with this image is that I know those balloons were moving, but not very fast and they're pretty far away from the photographer. That means you could have totally stopped them with a shutter speed of 1/16th of a second or less. To me, stopped motion would have been something that, even when stopped, infers motion - and it probably took 1/250th of a second or faster to accomplish. Just my opinion. Good luck with the challenge.

lovely!!!! Colours just splash from my screen here!! I like the see-through especially and the sharpness and brightness of the balloons! The right balloon being just that bit bigger than the left one, compensates for the centred composition keeping it from being boring. You've got yourself a 10!

great composition and color...the 3 in the middle really add to the photo.

Beautiful photo!
Colour, composition & focus are excellent. Looses a point for not realy meeting the challenge. (I hope your not surprised I said that)

Beautifully "clean" image with superb composition.
Well done

Like the other ballon pic, it doesn't meet the challenge, but it's good. :) I like this one a lot.
09/21/2004 08:52:05 PM
Nice photo!

What a catch!!!! Terrific composition.

Difficult not to stop the action with this subject, unless there was a hurricane blowing.
Nice image though.
09/21/2004 12:13:33 PM
Considering how slow hot air balloons rise I wouldn't consdier this to be a stop motion challenge. It's a very nice photo, however. Great use of negative space!
09/21/2004 11:18:06 AM
I love the colors, over all a good picture. Good Job!!

The crystal clear colours and the composition add a lot of impact to this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2004 08:26:22 AM
apparently they aren't moving ;) Nice 'frame' with the two larger foreground elements. Maybe stronger cropped square, right at the top of the right balloon - but then you lose that great sky colour - tough call.

And whoever said the motioned stopped has to be fast! Awesome image (10).

great composition

not another! these things are practically sitting still already
09/20/2004 10:07:19 PM
Very nice image. No action, though.
09/20/2004 09:02:58 PM
Gorgeous use of color! Perfect composition.

Nice framing!

This is one of the most amazing balloon shots I've seen. Excellent
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/20/2004 07:26:15 AM
those are pretty slow movers to be considered stopped motion....but there was not mention of speed...so good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/20/2004 07:21:12 AM
This is a really pretty picture and yes there is no motion blur... not sure there would be with air balloons anyway so I fail to see how this really fits the challenge in the grand scheme of things.
09/20/2004 07:06:53 AM
This image is verry beautiful, verry well framed, but I'm not sure for meeting the challenge. In a stopped motion challenge you kinda expect things that usualy move faster to be stopped. But again this is a wonderful picture. 9

Nice colours and composition but the object don't seem to be moving a lot
