Rehearsing for an outdoor play last June this appeared over the horizon. Just a small touch of saturation used to bring up the blue sky.
I'll be back near Valentia Island tomorrow.

Fantastic colors and a very nice composition too...TFS...Ina...

A simple composition which is nonetheless very affective. I like the lines made by the cirri and the space you've created to the left of the ballon, which gives an impression of freedom and immensity.

Hey Danny, I had picked out your latest bird shot to comment on earlier today before you made a comment to me, but then I looked through your gallery and found this shot, and had to comment immediately!
The blue is so intense and the baloon so small in the vastness fo the sky. The whispy white clouds are great too, all in all a very nice capture : )

Simple but effective - great colours, great composition!

Waouhhhh excellent saturation...I like these vivid colors.
The framing is verx good...excellent idea.
The impressive and strange sky and this yellow and red touch make the shot !
(sorry, I come back for the smile)

This image has all the basic elements of a well directed photo. All these elements have been described well by fellow admirers.
What caught my eye was the magical tongues of whispy clouds that guide the balloon forward in a gentle diagonal way. The side lighting gives great form to the balloons envelope wich was so important in this composition.
Well seen and well executed capture.

Very fine composition and colours you got on this photo - This looks like it taken from an other balloon - the fine clouds add extra to the image.

Good composition with use of "thirds" with great saturated colours

Very nicely composed. The contrast of the ballon is enhanced by the blue sky.

Le jaune dans le bleu du ciel claque comme un drapeau au vent. J'ai ajouté ce cliché au thème "Montgolfiers"

Awesome shot Danny!
I don't add a lot of photos to my fav's... but this one is going in. Big, Bright & Bold. I like it...
Well done Danny!

Well I'll prefer it without the saturation
A great "exercise" of colour..
