Computer's been down .
Good for flying and for watching several hundred balloons launching in a few short hours.

Lovely shot Charlie...Young lady looks very pleased to be there and looks like a big crowd behind her enjoying the day.

If you move to the left a bit, and they turn slightly to the right, then position for balloons, you might have less shadow on their faces?

Thanks BB, Bob and Ed.
Yes, Ed- I could have done those things and got a "better" portrait. But I don't shoot portraits as such.
I photograph people in situations that have some story-telling potential... that interest me... and that require the least amount of interference with the people as possible.
I indicated that I'd like to take a pic, the two looked at me, and as the girl smiled, I took one shot, thanked them and walked away.
No excuses- just reasons .
In my defense, the balloons begin their mass ascent as soon as the sun clears the eastern horizon. This image indicates that (the angle of the shadows are almost perfectly horizontal).

You don't need to defend yourself.

Not really defending (probably shouldn't have used that word)- just explaining. A carry-over from my elementary school teaching days .
Charlie
PS- this is not intended to be a defense either .
