Wonderful image! Great story, emotion, faces.

There's something about the aspect ratio here that's bugging me. I wonder if a 4:3 crop eliminating the target and really highlighting the wonderful reaction of the crowd would be more impactful. I don't need to know where she's aiming, maybe even better that it's ambiguous given the great facial expressions in the crowd, particularly the bald man at center. There's tension, apprehension, etc. I'd zoom in on that.

Overall great stuff! What you have here is really different than most images and quite wonderful.

Many thanks Chris for your kind comments and very interesting suggestion. I would never have thought of getting rid of the balloon but it is an excellent idea.
