Brilliant work Jack, stunning effect.

It could very well be a deep space shot of a supernova.

Well done,

Hello Jack
Amazing. Just wondered how many balloons you tested before arriving at this point. Also, how did you timed the click. Even at 3 sec exposure the skin remains distinct. Nice work.

Just to add to what all have already said - a great experiment.

Your continue to experiment very successfully. Nice idea well executed.
