Sold my soul to the Photoshop devil and moved the small balloon to the right as suggested.

Well done Alan - in fact the additional 'Air' between them does 'ease' the composition

very well done. i wonder if it isn't too perfect now. can't say the tension affected me in any way, ...conciously that is. now you've made me think.

A very commercial / attractive image. I can admire it but it doesn't affect me emotionally. I didn't see the original so can't comment on the difference.

Excellent, definitely improved. (since I was one of a few who suggested moving the small balloon, obviously a click!!!)

This is excellent, the first one was super but this has to be one of the best pictures I've seen on here, it would definitely get an Editors choice if I was the boss.
My eyes are drawn to the larger one now, the colours and feel of the material seem more pronounced ...then you sense the small one, just drifting away in that georgous blue sky. I love it.

Alan,
Nice shot, and great colours too.
I agree that this shot is better than your original.
Mind you...
Now you have made the adjustment in Photoshop, shouldn't it be categorised as Digitally Manipulated?

They're both good. I checked your portfolio and with both images side by side it makes them appear as if they were taken about 30 min. apart. You could make an interesting slide show of the smaller one moving across the sky.

Many thanks everybody (inc. Pete for the EC)

First time I've tried any major manipulation, I found moving the balloon a doddle but matching in the bit of sky was a lot more difficult.

Yes Doug you're right it should have been resubmitted as "Digitally Manipulated" - must have been the old traditional photographer in me preventing it! LOL
