Maybe this shot has a few technical limitations - (the strange "luminescence" (!) around the basket) - but, the composition, or compositional crop is pretty imressive, and really makes this shot interesting - far more interesting than "just another balloon shot". Well done.

Hello Colin,
Pleased to make your acquaintance.
I have no idea where the luminescence comes from. I am pleased that you like this shot. Thank you for visiting and leaving comments.
I love your gallery. I will be visiting again.
Take care, joni

The luminescence around the basket is caused by refraction of light around the edge of the basket itself. It is often referred to as the 'halo effect'. Note that it is not present along the left side and upper left corner of the basket. It can be avoided by using a polarising filter. To say it is a technical flaw is probably incorrect.
