|Wasn't going to enter this challenge and didn't make any effort to go shooting specifically for it. However, I came up with something I had shot anyway that I think works well. (sometimes those are the best) I was asked to shoot the Halloween fair for the YMCA where my wife works. I put myself at the base of the bouncy-slide for some fun shots of the kids coming down. This little girl was particularly animated, and even at 5 frames a second, I think she was in the air for most of them. I just love the expression of joy on her face, hence the title. Seems that I shot it a bit tilted in the first place, so I added a little bit more, and I think it added to the action.
Guessing a low to mid 5, perhaps.
-Harsh midday sun.
-Might be a little graininess showing in the sky on some monitors.
Came in about where expected, but an in-challenge fave, a Posthumous yellow, and a high commenter average tells me it had strong appeal for a narrow group.
I think the hard midday sun was what hurt the score the most, but I think I did as well with it as possible. On top of which, I really like the shot myself. I think I managed to convey a sense of childhood playfulness and joy. Not a bad showing for something that started as a good snapshot.
