A popular subject I know but I thought I would share my recent effort. Plus I want to get other peoples opinion on these photos. It was taken from the Bedminster downs area of Bristol. A mile away from where they were displaying at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta.
I don't have a very long lens compared to some people (55-200mm) and the clouds and low sun made it quite a dramatic sky. So I decided to go a little bit wider.
Nice images, I particularly like the first. The composition of the smoke trails leading in from the left give a dramatic sense of movement and tell the "story" of place and time relative to the aircraft. A very pleasing image you should be proud of.
