I am new here and relatively so to serious photography; so, I will offer only my response, not a critique.

I like it. It is somewhat diluted by the recent posting of the superb ballooner photo still imprinted on my minds eye. But in its own capacity, the depth and coloring are inviting and sharp. I have attempted similar photos, albeit without editing (hmmm....) and am similarly confounded by the loss of detail in the parasails. It seems one must start with an incredibly bright day to get the clarity and then add the ambiance of this work to get stunning. But, I am impressed. Well done.

Love the color of the sky, but the sharpening halos around the chutes are very distracting

These are some of my favorite shots, but too bad these are too far away :( Still good for a 7.
