This one took me about 25 minutes. It's an effort of simple contour lines, shading, and smudging. I'm not sure why I like this photo. I think what intrigues me most is that I'm dumbfounded on how it was taken so perfectly with objects (helium balloons) that don't stay put. Even down to the flash of white light down the center which I accomplished by use of a putty eraser. It doesn't quite work out as well as the actual photo but it gets the point across. With all of that timing and placement the composition really comes together.
