    i like #2 the most i am not big on technical terms but i think it has good balance and the people also add to the scale of these things. good job on these:thumbup:

    Overall, I really like those. I think the concept with those dark and bright areas in #4, 5 and 6 works really well. #3 is a little to abstract and "artsy" for my taste, but if you like it...

    #1 looks a little dull, I think it would look better if you boosted the saturation or the contrast a little. #2 looks a little boring, too, almost snapshot-ish.

    To me the subject is the three hauling on the line in #2. I would like to see a crop of them as a stand alone pic.

    Exactly, Ron. I think the balloons are a cool backdrop if you can get lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

    I'll post a link so I don't hijack, but here's one I got here in Ohio a few weeks ago. I cropped some sky off the top and a little off the sides but took the shot with this crop in mind.
