My process for the Bad challenge went something like this: "Oh, that's right... it's Tuesday! The deadline is an hour away and I haven't even thought about it. Hmm... well, I just finished taking photos of opening day at the local carnival, so I'll shoehorn a terrified expression in there and hope for the best."

I could shoot this one ride for hours. It never gets old.

In hindsight, I should have cropped it down to a vertical of just the two kids on the right for more impact.

Go, Snap Dragon, Go!

That kid on the right is going to trip on his shoelace when he gets off the ride.

I love it. Not sure I would crop the third kid out, to me it adds a lot to the shot. The older kid still appears apprehensive, middle kid looks scared and the little one just looks terrified. To me all three help make the shot a great image.

Congrats on the yellow! Part of my strategy is (often) the same as yours. Pity the results don't match.
