    Damn they look good. I went down on Monday morning, and the weather was crappy, rainy and only 4 balloons on the OPH lawns. None of the others flew that morning... waste of getting up @ 6am (although dutch pancakes FTW)

    Bcuz Im using the water as the mirror,,:Paranoid:

    The first 2 days was good, the weather was perfect and the crowds were there, it gave the good vibrant of Canberra.

    I missed out the dutch pancakes, I went to maccass civic instead..:lol:

    Agreed! went yesterday, was okay. But haven't looked at how mine turned out yet. No where near as pro as yours i would assume.

    Nice Job.

    Gov / Council websites. Thinking of doing a theme shoot?
    Tried it with a pre-wedding and it was a f4il. Bride was so cold that they both decided to cancel it and just enjoy the balloon ride..:lol:

    If you check at my post on top,, that's the link for this event and also upcoming event..

    before you cry.. tomorrow they have skyfire at lake burley, apparently there will be jetfighter show as well..

    sadly i cant see the show... last year's skyfire was pretty good, around 15minutes of fireworks,,i think.

    I like the photos from number 1..:)

    Neat pics. I wonder why they still use baskets, surely something much better could be made from alluminium or carbon fibre.

    Good shots - events like this are made for photography.

    However, the reflection shots without the subject (ie just the reflection) don't work IMO

    Do they still have the upside down balloon or have they stopped using it?
