3 comments and they all ask questions. lol. I wont ask cause I know where this is.
While I like the background, I don't think it's a good background for a photo. It seems busy and interrupts the subjects.
The action is good. I think it definately shows action. I'm not so sure about 'extreme', but it works non the less.
Lighting seems just a tad dark to me. Of course cause it's not the best lighting in the world, but I'd like to see more light on the subject.
The plane is a distraction, since it is 'still' while the balloons are the action, and each takes up an equal amount of photo space. I think I'd like to see more balloon and less plane. Not quite sure how you would accomplish that, but it's a thought anyway.
This is definately not your best work. And actually, am sitting here staring at the Febuary 17th Neighbors section of the Battle Creek Enquirer and see your name all over it.
I really think it's the background that distracts from the overall visual appeal of this shot. While it is a lovely background all by itself, it doesn't seem to work with the 'action'. Definately not something you can fix in this situation, but would definately be better had there been another option.

this is kind of creepy. I guess because of the painted background. Indoor amusement park? I like the angle of the balloon - like its going to fly away.
