I really love this, but I'm sure I'll get the nitpickers who hate the vignetting and the soft focus.

Will be away when this is finished, hoping for top 15, doubt it though.

Well I'm extremely delighted to wake up to
61 votes 6.65, hope it holds, or better still goes up.

Well on the 2nd day it go to as high as 6.81, has slightly dropped now to 99 votes 6.63, still I'm extremely happy with the score since I never thought I would do so well In a challenge like this, considering how beautiful the photos were in the first challenge, maybe the photos in this challenge aren't as good, or maybe it's that there was only 1/5th of the entries. Still I do have some tough competition, Wonder what I will rate, will be away when it concludes so if it does well, a big THANKS to all who voted high for me and to those who voted low....meh.
Also A BIG THANKS TO THOSE WHO LEFT ME COMMENTS ALWAYS LOVELY TO RECEIVE THEM.

I loved the idea of using the balloon in order to give the viewer the sence of the run.
(+ nice scene!)

You made your mark!

LOVE this!! Beautifully pp'd. Perhaps shifting the color of the balloon just a tiny bit towards red or blue, just to make it a bit different from the field.
