Hi and welcome. This is an excellent picture.

Since you want some tips - try to reduce the dark foreground to one half of what it is now. You can do that with a simple crop - see if it will improve your picture (not against your SC black background - that will not show). Also crop off about one inch (as it shows on the screen) from the left. That will move the balloons clearly off-centre into the left third of the picture. Just do this in your own software and check if you see an improvement. If you don't like it, you can always 'undo' or not save the changes smile
Liz Wilkie: Thanks Louis, the tip is much appreciated smile
