    A few from Frankenmuth Ballon festival May-2012.
    My 3 kids are old enough now we could stay for the nite glow, which was pretty neat to see.

    I saw these photos and instantly thought of the iPhone 4S sample photo.

    I also thought of Up! xD

    Due to the balloons being deflated, #1 seems to give a feeling that the picture itself is crooked when it's perfectly level. It's a little distracting for me.
    #2 is good. I'd like a little more saturation to bring out the colors. The splash of rainbow against the blue sky makes for a great contrast.
    #3, #4 and #5 seem a little overexposed by the flames. You could darken them in PP easily.
    I love #6. Well framed, nice details, good color.

    I agree with you comments on #2, I'll add some slight saturation/vibrancy to bring up the colors.
    edit - here it is:

    Yea, #3-5 night glow has such a wide dynamic range, it is what it is, some overexposure by the bright flames.
    Guess I accepted that w/o trying PP, from prior experience I had trouble blending the area when doing PP...I might re-visit.

    #6, can I say it was HOT taking those, right next to the dual flames.
    This was best of a bunch I took, the guy who owned the ballon was getting into flamming his ballon for me.
