This is just gorgeous -- love the tones and clarity and light and slight dreaminess. What's really amazing is that the composition has interest everywhere -- beautiful foreground flowers, great pov, lovely mountain backdrop, sky color, and that floating balloon as a focal point. You would think it would be too much but instead it all works together wonderfully for me. #8251276
