The Great Forest Park Balloon Race, Abstracted

Great Forest Park Balloon Race 2015-09-19 2

I shoot the Great Forest Park Balloon Race almost every year. It is usually very crowded and full of color. We'll get to that but sometimes all those gaudy tones could use paring down.

Clever of you to start with a few monochrome images. I always enjoy your balloon photos.

Sometimes a b/w world carries lots of strength. I like these. Up, Up and Away!

Bob, your first image here is awfully close to perfect.

I fully agree with Jack, that top photo is absolutely spectacular and brings something really novel to the genre of hot air balloon photography. I love it.
