Wow... Im amazed. Thank you everyone for the comments. You truly do inspire a photographer. I only wish that I had the gear and the knowledge that then, that I do now to make this a better image. Its amazing how much one can learn from comments and crituque along with working under successful photographers. My skills improve daily from the forums and professionels I work along side daily. Im glad my photos are enough to draw your attention among the many submitted here. I spend alot of time on the pc editing wedding photos for my business, but my real passion is my love for beauty in capturing what I see day to day. Thank you, and I try to look at everyones gallery that comments on my work even if I dont leave a reply. Starving artists, semi pros, professionals, and ametuers... it all starts somewere if you have the desire to be great. This has to be the best site to view photos, get ideas, and see what everyone enjoys about photography.

Oh... I forgot to mention that the blue and yellow lightning bolt balloon on the right is my fathers. I was there to help with launching and recovery of his balloon, along with shooting photos for the event that weekend. It was the best opportunity Ive had to capture some of the most graceful objects to fill the skies.
Thanks again,
