This was Darth Vader's debut at the Reno Balloon festival-caused quite a stir among the crowd.

Thank you, Dominick for responding twice. I had to take the other photo off because I notice a flaw, and I resubmitted it after the fix.

Very nice of you to respond again.

After looking at your Galley, Dominick, I would say that National Geographic would be lucky to get you NOW.

Fantastic images!

Thanks you, Chris, Maria, and Veronica. I am humbled! I got the news on my cell phone-I am just blown away. I have many fellow photographers who helped me with developing a final version of this photo, especially those of you in the FFFP Club, and those who told me not to give up on this photo, especially, Merna Nobile-thank you, Merna for nudging me on. Just being recognized for the work I did is a fantastic honor for me.

Well done taking this great shot. Aren't balloon festivals the best!! We were lucky enough to go to one 10 years ago just by chance & just before we got ant digital cameras. Very good work=^..^=
