A few shots from the Tigard (Oregon) Festival of Balloons last weekend, all with either the E-P1 w7-14, or the GH1 w/14-140:

sparklehorse,

I noticed you edited your post. The shot that was #2 is no longer there. Are you choosing not to keep it posted?
Gosh, sorry, I don't remember now which was originally #2. I may have added it back in. I got off to a bad start with this thread. I accidentally posted it before I was ready, then had to fix a bunch of stuff.

Regards,
Gordon

Nice composition, clarity and saturation. Nice to see another double m4/3 shooter too.
Thanks! Yes, it was great to have the two camera bodies with me. Loved having that continuous range from ultra-wide to telephoto without the need to change lenses. Very helpful in a scenario like this where things are changing quickly. And the compact size of these cameras makes carrying two of them easy.

No problem. Number 2 is now number 8. For some reason, I really like the composition.

Wonderful invention I reckon those balloons, you captured the fun and now I want to have a ride. Little balloons when you're a kid and large ones when you're big. Big kid's, thats all we are aye:)
I like 7 & 8, you've got a really nice depth of field. Did you use centre focus or multipoint?

I think my favorite is #8, too, but they are all great to see - I love hot air balloons! I've never gone up in one, but would love to...as long as it was a very, very calm day.:biggrin:

The colors and shapes are glorious!

I'll always remember a day many years ago, inside my brother's house...and we heard the strangest noise...we thought the boiler/furnace was going to explode!:eek: Finally we ended up outside and what to our amazement did we hear but someone calling out "Hello!" from up above us - two people in a hot air balloon very, very slowly and quite low down, drifting across the treetops!:2thumbs:
