Made this image out on the salt flats (crust is very hard, used 16 penny nails hammered in to hold the balloons, got them all out before leaving). The strong sun made colored shadows on the white salt. Apologies to anyone bothered by noticing the similarities to my Balloons challenge entry - might have entered this instead but hadn't processed it adequately until after deadline.

Second highest personal score so far, and 15th place in challenge. Glad to have this appreciated.

Extremely clever image. This should get you a blue, red, or yellow erm balloon :) I trust I am not your 1st Fave?

Nice use of selective color (normally I don't like that effect, but you did it well), especially in the shadows.
