RESIZED FOR COMPETITION
      Extra Info: One of the main reason's for the purchase of my flat was the view from the bedroom window. the area holds the largest UK hot air balloon show and if the wind is right they pass by.this was from the evening liftoff. there were some 150 balloons in this hare and hounds race
the area is home to Cameroon balloons who also make balloon shapes other that the ones shown here. i get to see all the new balloons from the comfort of the balcony. the black edge is the building next door which helps keep the storm winds from the north away.
[hare and hounds . one balloon takes off and travels as far as possible in the conditions and then lands. the winner of the race is the one who lands nearest to that point. it is not easy.

    wrosenthal: the balloons were going right to left.
neat. the building was added as I could not at that time pp the ivy on the building. it had been cropped but the lh edge woudld have the balloon fixed on the edge and out of shape.
Most balloon shots are taken in portrait shape rather than landscape due their shape, I was taking the large balloon and saw out of the corner of my the 2nd one and got all three. the delay cost me in the edge problem.
The festival has been going for over 30 years and I have probably got most of the balloons that have appeared. I now tend to concentrate on either shapes or new balloons which air tested here in Bristol.
The first and third year we had over 400 balloons. it was very expensive due to D&P costs

    Nice shot, but the 'border' on the left I find distracting. Wish you had waited for the foreground balloon to move right a bit.

    such a shame the wall or whatever it is to the left is in the frame, I would of cropped it out, surely you took a few other photo's, or maybe they weren't worthy images, I do feel it does spoil the photo, still good try though, I like how they go from large to small in scale well done.

    Obviously a great place for balloon spotting. Love the angle of light. Too bad the building is so intrusive.

    Has been and still is a want to take a balloon ride, how lucky you are to get this view, spectacular shot.

    The building next door spoils this one for me. Love the way you caught the three in a perfect row.

    An interesting subject. I would have cropped out the tree trunk and some of the closer balloon.
