Excellent choice to crop the top half of the girl off. It heightens the tension of the image. The rope is a great leading line between the two vertical pillars. Our eye naturally stops at the ball and then either backs up or skips on to the girl's legs. This is a good example of where a serendipitous composition (you didn't place the posts, ball, rope) really adds to the shot. I'm enjoying your frequent choice of B&W, which is something I lack in my own portfolio. An excellent take on the exuberance (and fears) of youth.

As far as using people in this challenge, I think this is the most original of the entries, because it's not as obvious. Really good point of view

An interesting and unusual point of view provides a powerful shot in this challenge. I like the crop as it focuses the eye on the precarious equilibrium of the child.
