I think your framing is attractive and the colors really pop in this image. I like how much of the fire can be seen from this point of view :)

Nice tight crop, fine sharp focus and beautiful white balance Control. I really like the clarity and details on the fire.
Colorful, focused, well exposed and fine POV.
Nice work!

Quite a nice entry into the competition posted here! No, you would never get me into one of those things unless there was no alternative!! Your fine image benefits from being well composed, with good exposure and sharpness. Well done and good luck!

Yes, certainly. I really would like to fly wit this balloon. I like your POV [point of view].
The angle from below emphasises the entire visible part of the balloon and the pilot, but especially the fire. The fire caught my eyes and my attention first, then my eyes were lead the balloon and back along the strings to the gondola and the man in it. The vivid colors are eye pleasing, The bright blue sky emphasises the colors of the balloon efficiently. The photo is balanced and adequately framed.

you should try: it is really funny; a
beautiful view; I did it several times, in Myanmar and Botswana;
a very good capure from a perfect angle to see the flame;

Nice shot of the fire filling the canopy. Good color throughout. The focus feels a little soft, especially on the pilot. Ballooning is so much fun. Nice composition. Good luck in the contest.

A nice capture of the hot air balloon. The composition is very nice and the colors are very nice. It looks like a balloon from an air festival somewhere. Quite nice.

Nice point of view! Well captured to show the basket and the man who knows how to control it! I like that I see the fire creating the hot air , love the warm colors of the balloon and the blue sky is a perfect background, although these are so beautiful in the sky and I'm sure it's quite an awesome experience to be up in the basket, no, I would not be brave enough to fly! This is well focused, the image is clear, exposure is well managed, the colors and tones appear natural, without over saturation! Well composed and presented! Best wishes to you in this contest!

I thinkthis is expertly shot ... it has all things to admire from the intense blue background, the angle catching the undership shade to the beautiful highlighted fames i think caught by the sun rays. I love how you caught the differrnt coloured mayerial on the balloon itself and how it is billowing. I think great focus and use of light made this. Good luck
