[i}Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew.
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.[/i]

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

The larger balloon provides a great balance and composition to the image, however for this challenge, the burst of color impact is somewhat lost in the inclusion of the black/red combo, renders the whole image darker. Still the rainbow colors against the blue sky are wonderfully competitive. 7

Nice. like the angle of the picture. I think if the third air-ballo0n ( middle) was not block. It would have been better.
