This is a shot of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta balloons. I didn\'t actually go to the fiesta, but we had a great time searching out the balloons on our own. This was taken from Rio Rancho, up above Albuquerque. The trees are the bosque of the Rio Grande River.

I'd like to see a large version of this - at this size it looks a bit too busy. I'd also have liked to see a closer up portrait view focussing on a smaller group of balloons.

The mediocre finish of this superb entry is strong evidence that the voters have not a clue!

the suns rays breaking through the clouds are a good effect, justa shame that they weren't on the balloons ( i know there was nothing you could do about this). Nice capture though

You've tried to capture too much here. Cropping can be a hard thing to do. The focus is divided between the over abundant balloons, the god-lights, and the fall colors. There's too much going on.
