Kind of hard to tell that it is a balloon - probably should be tighter / cropped.

Not enough detail in the shadows

it's hard to see the object as a balloon in the image. perhaps framing the shot with the balloon larger in the lower left, and still including the landscape?

I like the concept of contrasting ideas--beautiful beach and trashy balloon. I would have liked to have seen a closer view of the deflated balloon so that you wouldn't have to tell us in the title, and you'd still have a beautiful shoreline background. :) Good luck.

The balloon didn't take up enough of the image. It also doesn't look like a balloon. Compositionally, you set the frame very nicely. It does appear a little too dark, though. As to the best composition, since the challenge was garbage, you need to show that better in your image. A nice cropping to leave the balloon and part of the wave would have been better. If that was too out of focus when enlarged, a shot or two at a closer vantage point would have given you a better choice of which image would have worked best.
