    what a shame! if the image had been cropped to remove most (maybe all) of the dark area at the bottom, at the same time moving the centre of the circle away from the centre of the image - it could have been so much stronger. well done anyway

    such a cool shot!!!
    I like how the first guy on the left looks like he's got wings....
    so he doesn't really need a baloon to fly..;))
