Set up a couple of lights on the back patio, put a bit of water in a balloon and blew it up, and then had my son let it go. Yes, I could not get the color of the hands to look right. I thought about darkening the diagonal flare but I figured if I got started I would take it too far.

Great idea! Almost looks like an angry ghost trapped in the balloon!

Very interesting lighting. Works well on the balloon but the back of the forearm looks a bit odd to me. Still...I predict a top ten finish.

Love the balloon. Something weird and distracting going on with the light and color on the arms, particularly the one in the rear. A different treatment or a different crop might have been better - just enough to show the other hand but remove the weird lighting/color. Tighter crop would have highlighted the balloon a little more as well. 7 that could have been higher.

Love the great idea. Wasn't sure about the lighting 'blur' which I guess is a consequence of the balloon moving. Still one of my favourites.
