@Miss Ruthie: Thank you. Albany is a little over an hour south of Portland. The Air Show was right off of I-5.
Une photo d'une incroyable beauté ! Une fête pour l'oeil et le coeur ... BRAVO !!!
25 Sep 2009 5:26am
This is a spotlightfoto, those colors, so so beautiful.
5 stars from me Jack, well done!!

oh jack ! the warm and perfect shot , well done
25 Sep 2009 5:58am
@masoud: Thank you.
Almost looks like HDR. Is it? The colors are just magical. It is very joyful!
25 Sep 2009 6:13am
@Dulcie: No HDR. In LR, I added a bunch of Fill Light because of the shadows. Added some Blacks, a little Vibrance and some Clarity. The brilliance of the colors is due to the materials and the light.
Fantastic. I agree with Dulcie, the colours are magical. Very nicely done.

@Sarito: Thank you.
25 Sep 2009 8:54am
@Elena Kotrotsou: Thank you.
great colors - i like the long shadows! well orchestrated event - everyone seems to be getting their balloons up at once. also cool that they're 'traditional' - i was rather disappointed at my first balloon shoot that virtually every craft was shaped like something odd and most had corporate ads all over them...
25 Sep 2009 9:18am
@djedfre: Most of the advertising was confined to the baskets.
beautiful light, colours & viewpoint
25 Sep 2009 10:01am
@sawsengee: Thank you.
Excellent composition. With all this color its got to be tempting to just shoot away.
25 Sep 2009 10:28am
@jeff (aka dogilicious): Thanks. To a degree, I did shoot away.
Love that morning light! Well captured!
25 Sep 2009 10:30am
@Craig: Thanks, Craig.
What a feast for the eyes this shot is. The sort you can just sit back and look at for hours..It is simply sensational. If this isn't one of Aminus's featured pictures today I'll eat my hat. (Fortunately I have a hat made out of chocolate for just such unjust events!) Enjoy this shot....like I am!
25 Sep 2009 11:15am
@MrsAmber: Many thanks, Kate.
beautiful palette of colors and beautiful framing, jack!
25 Sep 2009 1:22pm

Joli cadrage sur tous ces mongolphières colorées

25 Sep 2009 2:23pm

The vivid colors of the balloons makes the picture very appealing. I like how you have one balloon airborne.
25 Sep 2009 2:29pm

Brilliant colour composition.
25 Sep 2009 2:43pm

@MARIANA: Thank you.
A shot of many colours. I wish I could get to one of those balloon gatherings.
25 Sep 2009 4:15pm
I'm guessing this is very early morning, as they usually begin quite early to get things going. The light is marvelous and you captured the beautiful colors so well.
25 Sep 2009 4:32pm
@Judy: Txs. Read the commentary for Day 1.
Magnificent colors and light... a very beautiful meeting.

@Dawn: Thank you.
I love that riot of color. That's a superb composition with the one balloon floating up, up, and away.
25 Sep 2009 8:23pm
@Steve Rice: Thanks, Steve.
Great colors, like Steve just said, a "riot of color" is perfect to describe this photo.
25 Sep 2009 8:25pm
@Viewfinder: Thank you.
Good evening Jack,
a great moment and super beautiful colors. I like the sunlight in the morning too.
Best regards Christel

25 Sep 2009 9:23pm
@Susan: Thanks. It's early dawn light.
Lot's of balloon!! Very colorful.
25 Sep 2009 11:09pm
Phenomenal use of color on this. Just incredible Jack.
26 Sep 2009 2:02am
@Tammy-Cricket: Thank you for all of your kind comments.
26 Sep 2009 2:31am
@Sandrine: Thank you.
Beautiful! I love balloons! and this is a wonderful photo of them... Did you get to go up in one?
26 Sep 2009 2:37am
@Tracy: Nope; just took pictures.
SUPER SHOT! The colors are spectacular. I love it the way it is, although cropping off the bottom leaving just the balloons gives another version of the image. Although it may loose some of the bottom balloons. Just my opinion.
First you have all of those gorgeous coastal images now balloons full of color. Both are high points on my passion list.
I think this is my favorite balloon shot yet.
26 Sep 2009 2:53am
@Barbara: I cropped it just for you.
WOW! Actually I'm speechless, but I love the crop.
Thanks, Jack. Are you pleased with it cropped as well?
26 Sep 2009 3:14am
@Barbara: You bet! Thanks for the recommendation.
Quite a capture of striking patterns and colors!
26 Sep 2009 2:55pm
I totally agree with Barbara! And the warm sunlight highlights the balloon's colors so well!
26 Sep 2009 10:15pm
Amazing colours! I'm absolutely loving this series!!!!
27 Sep 2009 4:45am
Late to the party once again, but here's my comment. This is absolutely stunning! The colors are beyond amazing. Five stars!!
