No, not my first. I've lived my whole life in South Africa, and have used this balloon often. Just never from this angle.

The bird, the building, the balloon -- a fascinating image. I love the processing.

Great use of the buildings and edgy arty dark edit. It's not easy photographing here :)

I kind of wish it didn't say Hyundai on it. Nothing against Hyundai, but another kind of design--or even a solid color--that wasn't a corporate logo would have been sweet. Cool picture though. Has sort of an Edgar Alan Poe kind of feel.

Hmmm, the more I look at it, the more the Hyundai grows on me.

I have to say its rather a strange mix of elements here but I wish you well with it

This has a surreal feel to it. Love the bird.

the bird is an unexpected surprise - and the reason it makes me linger

I like the overall mood here, I just wish the balloon wasn't a big advertisement.
