This is AMAZING! I've never seen anything like that. The perspective of the teeny tiny basket of people are what truly make this. And that turbulent sky! Wow!

The dark cloudy skies give this the ominous feel this balloon deserves. Very cool shot. Bumping up.

That godzilla(?) balloon looks great against that dark and angry sky. Well done!

I like the sky a lot. The highlights are a bit blown in lower left (and I'm sure everyone will mention it), but at the same time the baloon seems a bit underexposed. So the lighting wasn't on your side in this shot but you did pretty well despite that. 7

This is wonderful! Did you selective desat or was that the natural colour of the sky? Well spotted and taken all the same. 8

Haha... this is way better than all of the shots I took of him - what night/morning did you take this? I thought the whole weekend was clear!

(I am assuming you're in London?)

Great mood!
