I love these balloon shots. We found out about a Balloon festival near us in Dansville NY in the Finger Lakes over the weekend, unfortunately too late to go see it. Maybe next year.

Great shots, were you in a balloon by any chance? That would really be awesome.
Some of those balloons look almost cartoonish as if they had been PP'd in.
Looks like there are quite a few artifacts in #3.

I like the composition of #2 the best. It's defined rather than a random collection of balloons. Nice vibrant colors. Looks like it was a beautiful day for ballooning.

No, all the pictures were taken from ground with a Sigma 70-300mm at 70mm.

Thank you to all for the comments, it was a beautyful day and i'm happy to share the results...

Very nice work, but unlike the others, I just can't decide which I like better.
