I took a few photos at my wife’s niece’s first birthday party this weekend and this was one of my favorite shots. I like the juxtaposition of the balloon photo and the subject baby in the baby in the background, and the colors for sure. There’s something else intangible there that I can’t put my finger on, but I’m not going to worry about it. Sometimes you just like a photo for not particular reason.

Cool, fun shot! Great rhythm between the balloon and the baby's face!

Cheers!

I think what you are feeling is the contrast of emotions more than any contrast of colors or lighting in the photo. That's what I felt when first seeing it and your comment cemented it for me. A very unique shot.

Thanks Barry and Doug. Definetly two more elements of the shot I like.
