Actually, it's tethered with fishing line, but I cloned that out. I also toned down the bright spots on the balloon and shortened the ribbon slightly. Used a circular polarizer to make the sky darker.

Oh, you used fishing line. You're so smart. I just let balloon after balloon go and tried to catch them as the drifted past. Guess your smarts paid off. Your balloon kicked my balloon's ass!

Free of constraint, yes indeed ... or is it. Trapped within the wind, with no means to guide its own destiny.

I like this... great interpretation... but I wish the balloon wasn't centered.

This is so simple but I love it. The sky is so blue and the balloon is just yellow. This is great 10

Good idea but the straight line & centered composition hurts the shot

Nice colours and framing. The concept and title are also very good.

Strong link to challenge theme - if I were to show people this image without mentioning the challenge theme I'm sure the word "freedom" would pop up. 8

Yeah, it's a balloon. Try experimenting with different crops on this, I'm sure there's a more interesting way to frame this.

Haha, mine is the other balloon entry. They move fast, don't they! It was way harder to get a shot than I thought it would be.

I might have cropped this a little closer but then it may have taken away from the feeling of floating. Hmmm...

I hope this is a ribbon winner.
Really says freedom to me
good luck

I like the idea and love the blue sky ... too bad there weren't more clouds or something to give texture to the sky.
