Small boys ... small balloons


Cobow hat, ever burned your hair ? That's the reason he is wearing it.

This is India too, you know, not what you would expect maybe, something else seen from there.
Taken on a fancy-fair for local dealers, I had in mind to take an overview of whole Madurai in the evening but there was too much wind that day, so he didn't dare to go up that high, oh well it gave me a detail of his balloon.

A wider shot

Canon EOS 1D Mark II ,Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Spectacular shot!!! The perspective is wonderful! So different than the 'typical' balloon shot! Great colors, details and crop! Vote!

This is a fantastic shot. The lighting is perfect and the perspective gives great impact. I like the dof where everything is in focus. Bravo on a fine capture (v)
