Only 7 hours left in voting and I have a total of 199 votes. How sad is that. And my half entry has even less. Whats the deal members?!?!?

Anyways - this was shot with the intentions of entering into silhouette but the editing looked horrible in basic. So into the FS it went. I gave Aidan a bunch of balloons and then had him release one at a time and then point to them. There are a couple of outtakes where you can see the previous balloon way off in the distance. We had alot of fun. He was giving the balloons to God. My boy loves God enough to give Him all of his cherished balloons. My boy rocks!

Alot of color editing on this one. I wish it was more in focus and had I been shooting this for the FS I would have done it differently. But at 6.73 how can I complain.

Excellent use of primary color. If you build a stock library, stick this one in there - it will do well! (Oh, edit to add that it's a good thing I'm not keeping track of gross margin, just wins/losses.)

The idea, composition and excecution of it are excellent. But it is a little oversaturated and lacks sharpness. Fix this and it would go all the way.
