Since the fall I have struggled with creativity. And this last week the challenges just didn't trigger any creativity.

So two days before voting this idea came to me and I had the opportunity to shoot it. And it worked...yayyyy!

I didn't care where it came in the voting, I was just so happy about getting the idea and being able to execute it.

OMG....I just realised I got blue...wahoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!! I can do it....yayyyyyy!

Holy moly! Way to go on getting back in the swing of things Judi! Congrats on your Blue...and this when you are still recovering!

Great image and also great mood and feel of "happy/carefree/live life to the fullest" This gentleman will not be 'grounded' in his seat. Stay seated does not enter into the picture as he let's his playful side free. Imagination and joy will carry him out of his seat - lifting his spirits even though the sky may be grey/stormy/cloudy. Great processing too - the red of the balloon really stands out from the stormy/dark sky. Pose of the model is great as that he is ready to be 'swept' away.

Congratulations! This really surprised me, looks like you're making a comback. I hate to say it that way, but it looks like you're falling back into place. Life is mundane without challenges, but be a calculated risk taker, as an entrepreneur.

Hehehe yu are funny. I know that my style has changed, I am editing with a different result now. I am not sure if I like it yet, but I suppose I have to get used to it. My OT had a good talk with me the other day and said that I will never return to what I was but I will find ways around it. And I guess I am, in this case, my editing style.


That's absolutely correct, and I'm pleased you noticed it about yourself. This is a very different sort of aesthetic than your "normal" style from the old days, pre-accident. Personally, I think it's a step forward, but then I would, wouldn't I? :-)

So far, one of the most creative pieces in this challenge. I wish the strand on his balloon was a little longer but that might be nitpicking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2010 03:18:07 AM
maybe the best of the bunch but just my little worry is i've seen the pose and the concept before (here in dpc). anyhow, great work.

This is ribbon material. Everything is exemplary and contributes to this image, the pov, the pp'ing, the colors, the pose. The lighting especially is terrific, bringing out the brightness on the reds and on the face and hands of this harbinger of happiness. I am so envious of people who have interesting skies (although for living in, I wouldn't trade my blue ones)

LOVE!!!!! The balloon is perfect. Man, I hope that guy didn't fall down. Only problem is, to me, this isn't about his face at all, which is what a true portrait is about. Hmmmmm Now I'm torn.
