Colours and composition are fantastic. If it is a professional jury, they will probably deduct a little bit for cutting off the feet of the guy in the foreground, who is part of the total composition.

looks great to me.......the subject (partially deflated balloon) is unusual and it sure fits all the other requirements.

Superb shot Bill..!
Is there no photo editing at all?
I ask because apart from the cut off foot there are also two small marks in the sky that could be dust on your sensor.
If you look just above the balloon right of centre and just short of half way you will see the larger one, just right of that is a less visible and smaller mark.

Good luck in the contest Bill...let us know how you get on..... Meg. :-)

Wonderful perspective!

no Meg - NO editing allowed (although I don't know how they could tell )

the "spots" are actually small helium balloons - I managed to catch a lot of shots with them in the pic(personally like it) and several that I timed to catch a helocopter in the same frame.

I'm so pleased that they aren't dust spots Bill. :-D

I would have a hard time choosing between this one and the on with the 2 balloons. This foto shows that it is not all fun and games, but some very hard work.

Judy this is the one I finally chose for the overall competition.

for the Bunny photo I had the hardest time - but finally decided to submit the one with the small balloons. It seemed the best of my "creative" shots.

All are superb shots, Bill! I don't know which one to choose from.
