Here a balloon seams more like a “Kevlar Balloon” as a shot goes through it and is caught and reflected back. This is the epitome of a lucky shot. I shot five balloons, and this is the only one that the flashes synced with. For once no major Photoshopping necessary!

This was a very lucky “shot,” in more ways then one… Its also one of those photos that I can crop into a lot of interesting photos.
