Well, it looks like balloons are popular of late. I think it's mainly the angle that I like in this shot, and the balance between the balloon on one side of the image and the man on the other. Had your shot been level, it might have been boring. This works better. Well done. And congrats on getting an EC award for it!

agree with Patrick, the light on the hat lifts the bottom r/h corner beautifully. Without it the resultant silhouette wouldn't have been half as effective.

Congrats on the POTW & EC
