Seems like a simple enough shot. But, gee... the wind was a nightmare for focusing on the balloon.

I doubt this will do well... too artsy, I think, for the voters... but I like it. *grin*


I predict 5.6-5.8

I liked it. I would have expected this to finish higher. I liked the diagonal leading in and the red color just popped. Nice to include the sky which is where we expect most helium balloons to go lol. Also - great way to demonstrate use of this element. Fun shot :)

Exposure seems a bit uneven, might be from the processing.

An OK image of a balloon. Thy sky/clouds looks very faded in the bottom left. Otherwise fairly sharp

Very simple but contrasting against the sky, it's got a great look to it.

too much post processing on the baloon

I think there is a little too much post processing on the balloon. I am guessing the balloon was too dark and you had to lighten it up.
