Random Acts of Kindness

Contributed by M Bevis

I took this picture in my backyard, I saw this really random hot air balloon so I took a picture. Just put a curves adjustment on the picture, I really like how it turned out

i like this picture! i actually saw this hot air balloon too but it was further away from me when i saw it! I like how the colors from the balloon stand out and its not right in the middle of the picture, its a little off centered giving more room for the beautiful sky! This is a pretty good shot!

I like this photo. I think it is neat how the balloon was so random. I like the position of the tree, but it leaves too much free space in the upper right area. Perhaps the photo could be taken at a different angle to the hot air balloon could be in the free space. I think the sky is too yellow. If it was made brighter and more blue, the hot air balloon would pop more.

I really like the colors in this picture. They are all really warm and the colors of the balloon look good on the back drop of the sky. The positioning of the balloon is good, but I think the picture would have looked better in the left corner. That is something you can't control so I understand why it wasn't. Over all it is a really good picture.

haha okay so the first thing i said when i saw this picture is that i saw this in my backyard to. But then i realized it was you Morgan. But this is a good picture because you took the 1/3 rule into place and you didn't just center the balloon and i like the fact that the trees are coming in the shot. The sky looks cool to - good job booger.

hey this is a cool picture. i have seen hot air balloons before as well. there pretty neat. I like this picture because the subject is interesting. i like how the hot air balloon is far away and your looking from by a tree. so it makes me wonder where you are. I do not like the colors on the pine tree. it looks a little over saturated. The greens of the needles seem to be blending into each other. I d like how the yellow of the balloon contrast the blue sky. this makes this picture interesting. the clouds are interesting. i like the low cloud on the bottom of the picture. that is neat looking. i like its part in the picture because it makes the balloon seem higher. Overall this is a good picture.

wow. amazing color. I love the way the warm colors make this photo seem much older than it actually is. the only negative is the dead space in the upper left corner. then again im not sure if that would take away from the piece because it would eliminate that purplish gray cloud... so im not sure but i would play with that a little and maybe with bringing out the yellow undertones a little more.
great job w/ this photo tho ;)

)This is an interesting shot, i love the image of the balloon flying into the sky. nice foreground with the trees and an interesting sky makes for a nice picture. The clouds in the bottom are a little hazy, other than that its a nice picture. good work

i saw this balloon too! this is a pretty good picture but maybe if you had zoomed in more or gotten a little closer it would be better. i also agree that the pine tree's color is a little odd. but other than that its good.

Love the sky in this photograph. There is a contrast of dark clouds and nice light clouds. The subject stands out well with the background. The colors work well. Like this one alot

i like the color of the sky and how the clouds are very unified, i also like how you got the tree in the shot. also i saw a balloon that looked just like this yesterday.

I really like the picture, I just have to agree with what everyone else has said. I do like the look of the picture, but I wish the hot air balloon was closer up. I understand that it was really far away, but other than that great shot!!

This is a really cool picture, To me from the angle you took it it makes the air balloon look like it is really small and is landing on the branch of the tree. It's a really good picture.

This is a cool picture, i like the way nothing is really centered and the baloon really stands out. The sky looks cool and the tree adds a nice touch too.

I like how this picture looks kind of old and it has a grainy look to it. The colors are really soft but the hot air balloon still pops out of the teal blue sky. This is nice. It looks like you used the rule of thirds to make the hot air balloon pop. I would have to say that this picture is really calming and chill.
