Congratulations on the purple ribbon (or is it green?) With a score like this one you should be on the front page! And it was Ottawa!!!

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww! A purple ribbon.... :-(

I was so hoping for a "real" one this time! So close!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments.... and I did make Zeus' top3. :-)

Never got round to finishing voting, let alone commenting, but this was my personal favourite of those i saw: still quite surprised it didn't finish higher, and for the life of me couldn't see why it didn't. Excellent work Yanick.

What a fun photo to look at! love the colors - good job:)

The sheer number of balloons, at varying sizes and colours make a wonderful postcard! The cumuli with their equally random arrangement add further viewing pleasure. The rich colours, apparently taken through a polarizer, stand out perfectly against the hue of the sky.

Good (or lucky) composition, technically apt for the purpose, this is a very l i g h t capture, but a very successful one. Fun, fun, fun.

Good colors. I like the varying depths of the balloons in the sky. Nice work.

This is truly awsome

Owwwwwwwwww, a dream subject. Balloons are so cool, all the different colors, patterns in the sky, strange funny shapes. Another interesting subject when it comes to this is kite-surfing. Especially when large groups of them crowd a small bit of the lake or sea.

Nice shot. I like it how the scene seems to grow from small to big. Fluffy clouds make for a good sky. Great colors.

Wow. Definitely repetition and definitely a stunning shot. Absolutely wonderful capture and the blue sky and puffy clouds really hellp. Oh, ok, so I'm jealous because when I went to a hotair balloon festival it was gray and drab all day. One of my top favorites here, anyhow.

I could be wrong (And lets face it I normally am) but I think you may have a winner here. Vivid colours, beautiful sky and a great scene. Just fantastic.

Beautiful! I've been hoping to get a shot like this, but our weather has been so miserable this summer that any area balloon launches have been rained out. Great colors!

Taken in Ottawa? Nice shot!
09/01/2003 11:01:22 AM
