Bristol Balloon Fiesta
Posted By: Graham V, 08-11-2009, 01:18 PM

View of the dawn ascent at he Bristol Balloon Fiesta over Clifton Bridge.
Unfortunately the take off didn't come over the bridge so I had to try some alternative compositions.

Any of them work at all?

I really love the smooth gradient and full shot of the bridge in the first picture. Looks great!

Nice ones.
The first one does give the impression of the scale of the bridge vs balloons best, and the bridge itself is interesting in the photo.

I've seen this on the news in the TV. Nice shots. I really like the 1st and 3rd is good too.

I'm jealous. The balloon festival here last weekend was all but cancelled due to high winds. Nice shots and thanks for sharing

Thanks for all your comments.

Definitely worth a return visit next year with the hope the wind is in the right direction.
