This was a very fun shot to take. It's outdoors, natural lighting, editing is as follows:

1. Crop
2. Noiseware Pro
3. Curves
4. Hue/Sat for B&W

Nice frozen action, but to me this looks over sharpened. At the same time it also loses texture like there's been too much noise-removal. I think the crop is slightly awkward too. You'll probably get voted down for not actually including a balloon as well, but for me it's the processing which lets it down - 3
