He looks apprehensive, is that the ride that drops you into a freefall? Scary. I am sure this would be a tough one to shoot, but looks like the shutter wasn't fast enough to get complete focus.

if you're going to angle your composition - REALLY angle it. This looks like a photo you didn't correct before entering. if that center kid was on a 30 - 60 degree angle, and the other two cropped out, this would have a ton more energy compositionally.

The focus here is a little soft, but the composition would make this a higher scoring photo - well - for me anyway. I can't speak for the other 200 voters. ;-)

Hope that helps.

I love the expressions on the kids faces - excellent! As far as stopped motion goes, I'm not sure how this image should/could be reframed to convey more stopped motion, as I would like to see more evidence that the image has motion - maybe zooming out just a bit more? Regardless, priceless expressions - well done! 7 from me!

this is too tight of a crop to feel that there was any motion at all

too soft, and not enough apparent sense of motion. maybe if you had shot this vertically, it would be stronger.

Fun photo. Little blurry, but is a nice addition to the home photo album I'm sure. Looks like they are all having a good time! ;^)
