A light breeze makes balloons very uncooperative. And balloons really move fast!Setting up this shot was a lot harder than I thought it would be.

Wish the balloon was a color other than blue... but it's not.

Free from confinement, but still at the whims of the wind, with no ability to decide for itself.

that's really quite good! I like the interpretation.... but I would have included more sky, I think.

Great idea!! ;-) I wish there had been some clouds in the sky when I made my balloon shot. Although a bit bright here, they make the photo more interesting.

Good Idea, too bad it couldn't have been a balloon with a cotrasting color.

Great idea but the balloon's kinda out of focus and the color's a little dull but it's a great photo beside's that. Great job

I like th iconograph here, and also the framing, but the blue balon against the blue sky lacks visual pop. The edges look soft and the ribbon fades in and out of visibility. Very close to being a top pick.

Great idea and framing in this shot. The composition with the balloon being in the corner really emphasizes freedom. Focus seems a little off though, and there seems to be a little noise evident, particularly in the sky. Great shot nonetheless.

Perhaps a different color balloon to contrast with the blue sky would have made this more interesting. The focus is a bit too soft.

like the idea -- maybe a brighter color balloon against the sky would have been more eye catching

Good composition and a nice interpretation of the challenge. I think a different color balloon might have added more contrast to the image, but it still came out nice.

I am not sure if this is candid or not..but I would like to see the balloon in Red or Yellow or just some bright color...Too much blue
