Pastoral beauty. Outstanding. 10.

Beautiful.. love the combination of the calm landscape with the one balloon. The sky colors and the light finish off a wonderful combination. Well done!!

Beautiful colors, light and composition. Back to bump you up to 9.

nice light.
11/05/2006 09:10:37 PM
Absolutely beautiful. The pastels in the background only add to an already stunning image.

Plus, it's a hot air balloon. DPCers love hot air balloons. Good luck, 10!

good composition, and great colours, i really like the misty feel of the sky.
11/05/2006 02:42:44 PM
Lots of balloon shots so far - this is the best so far because of the beautiful moody lighting and perfect composition. 10

adds a new meaning to the word "crisp"
11/03/2006 09:59:44 PM
Stunning light in this beauty. Fantastic scene and even greater capture of it. Very nice!
11/03/2006 06:15:24 PM
This could easily be a poster or a postcard! Brilliantly done!!
11/03/2006 04:24:39 PM
Out of all the Hot Air Balloon entries, I like this one the best. The composition and colors of the atmosphere, and the location work perfectly.
11/03/2006 10:48:52 AM
Beautiful early morming colors depicted here. Perfect composition. Should do very well for itself. Excellent work!
11/03/2006 09:18:50 AM
Yes, yes, YES! A bunch of folks were at this event I take it looking at the number of balloon shots...this one takes the cake so far. Wonderful lines in your composition and the colors just jump out. You've convinced me. This I have to see next time in person. :D Well done.
11/03/2006 07:35:06 AM
Lovely colours and I really like the contrast between the balloon and the scenic, misty mountain backdrop. I like how the balloon is just above the ground and breaks the horizon just the right way for this shot. Great setting.
11/03/2006 06:16:38 AM
Very pretty
11/02/2006 11:42:36 PM
Stunning shot here.....
11/02/2006 07:30:59 PM
Beautiful light here, I like the layers of sky and mountain.
11/02/2006 03:57:01 PM
this is a textbook dpc picture. I'll be interested to see how it scores. I'll give you a 7, because it does have some heart, not just flash.
11/02/2006 11:36:23 AM
Gorgeous Capture!!
11/02/2006 07:04:11 AM
Beautiful lighting in this shot, I also like the added effects of the fog .
11/02/2006 06:57:44 AM
i would like to fly this balloon. Beautiful with the horses. They weren't afraid!
11/02/2006 05:13:08 AM
Very cool photo. For some reason, it makes me think of a jigsaw puzzle. Nice job.
11/02/2006 12:19:55 AM
gonna be hard to beat this one. nicely done.
11/01/2006 09:33:09 PM
I love the contrast between the color rich balloon and the pastel like landscape. Good luck in the challenge!

aaaahh, beautiful ... love the compo and colors
11/01/2006 12:54:33 AM
a little less sky might add to this image which has no other flaws I can see.
11/01/2006 12:48:35 AM
A real crowd pleaser. AND any image with horses or cows, gets a point bump from me. 8
11/01/2006 12:36:10 AM
Beautiful soft light. Rich tones. Love the gradation in the sky, and shadows in the field. Nice job. 10
