I had to work quick and squeezed off a couple of shots right inside the hot air ballon.

Very effective. Like it. I could ask for my usual figure, but not necessary here.

well i really like this, the colours and the white detail all come together to make a striking abstract.
i think that you may have been able to tighten the composition some by a slight shift in position and placing the circular shape nearer the third and getting a more diagonal relationship between the white logo ad the circle, but hey, wish i had been there.

Thanks guys for your comments. I wondered about cropping this image to try and get the circle into more of a thirds position, could it be done and where do you think a crop could improve the image?

In answer to your question, Bernie, I have attempted a modification. It involves quite a drastic crop, but I think it's quite effective. Composing with the rule of thirds in mind would obviously have been preferable. The red is very striking, the image is unusual, and I like it a lot just as it is.
Pamela.

Thanks very much Pamela, so much to think about sometimes. But I like what you have done and it does lead the eye in to the centre of the image. I can see from you pf how you have made great use of the thirds rule so thanks again for taking the time to show me and give good advice.
