    I agree, they are a bit dark, especially if they are supposed to be the main feature of the photo. The silhouetting of the lamp post or whatever kind of post it is draws the eye over to the left and behind the post instead of focusing on the sad balloons. I think it might also have been better if you'd gotten closer and really just showed the balloons.

    The second one does work quite nice. Man if the sun was on the other side of the lamp post...........................
    BTW, I think with the state of the balloons, the dark shot works for me.

    Yeah i initally thought about moving the balloons to the otherside but I had just finished watching "Creative Outdoor Photography" by Lanting & Rowell and really took to heart what they had to say about not messing with the natural placement of shots- how you find things in outdoor photography and why not to move things and disrupt the placement to achieve a truely natural photo. I know I'm a freak but I 'm trying to apply it to urban photography. :D

    Those balloons make me think of the remains of the night after a stag party. So that means, it's a happy photo! They got married the day you took the photo. Talk about capturing the moment!
