A lovely old fashioned treatment and tone to this. What a puzzle.

Could never get tired of these. Such a strong sense of childhood in all your work.

I'll have to try something similar with my daughter soon!

Well done!

This is a fantastic shot. It has a wonderful Alice-in-Wonderland feel to it, as if she knows that something will happen when she picks up the balloon but she can't resist.

One nitpick is that there's a bit of a smudge rising from the balloon, almost like a dark flame, which I find a bit distracting. It looks more like an editing artifact than a part of the picture, to my eye.
