    I do not like the way you cut the balloon in your composition.

    Saturation is always a question of taste ...

    It is VERY saturated ... but for the balloon this is very nice in my eyes ... just the sky looks to artificial for me. Maybe you could desaturate the just sky a bit. Also you get posterization in the sky (probably from pushing the contrast too far in postprocessing?)

    I agree... I think a little less blue would be nice.

    I actually kind of like the comp. on this one.

    There's a slight halo around the balloon, but that's the only negative thing I have to say.

    Normally yes, it would be too saturated. But this looks like an ad and then it would be just perfect. Vibrant fake colors attract customers.

    Well the halo around the balloon will tell you it's over cooked... but still its a shot that works... just a little to overdone for my taste ..
