I thought this was a brilliant shot, my grandmother used to make barrage balloons in WWII, so I instantly thought of her when I saw this shot.

Great job with this one Oliver! I was thinking this does not look like Germany to me. Then I saw your stated location. Looks like quite a place (end of the world aside of course) and hope you had a great visit there :)

Nicely done Oliver. Did they use the dreaded Hydrogen or get the safer Helium?

Interesting idea. I like it.

This image fits the bill perfectly in this challenge. It is put together well without the cut and paste look. The colors are stunning and truthfully I find this image to be a bit humorous (where are they all going, Outer space)? At the same time it is dramatic and puts a good story in ones mind. Good job!

i think maybe a different photo viewpoint and scale would have worked better
