I've been a long time admirer on this site but am usually too lazy to create a photo in time to meet the challenge deadlines. We'll see how this first submission goes. I went to a the NASA Ballunar festival last weekend, and although I had hoped for a happy deep blue sky and colorful balloons, this fit the challenge!

This pic worked. It should have place higher. The sky is very well exposed against the balloon. Good work here ... please keep at it

The shot would also have been well suited for the upcoming ROT II challenge. Cool shot!

Interesting, though I wonder if it would be more powerful in b/w.

NIce image, the sky looks great with bags of detail. I also like the composition and the angled look to the whole image, good luck with this one!
