We got to the Park at 3:45 and the sun was already getting ready to set over the mountain. Which gave me the long shadows. This was the first time since getting my camera I had taken the camera off of Auto. I got several nice panning picks. There were other ones with better panning effects but this one is the best facial expression. I altered the color just a bit and change the framing and size.

I enjoyed this photograph. It's happy, fun and colourful! One comment though, try cropping the legs at the top of the frame as they are a bit of a distraction.

i would have cropped out the legs in the bg and this would have been perfect for the challenge...like this, it's more of a snapshot...taking out the legs (try it and see) will add so much more drama and impact

Good sense of motion here, keeping the main subject clear - fun shot!

Good capture of the action but could be cropped tighter as the legs above are a bit distracting. Like the shot though! =7

That's good. Tells a story and manages the challenge well.

Looks like fun, nice capture

Fun shot, but I think the shutter speed was too fast to really show the motion. This is more like stop action.

Very nice capture. The composition has a very lively feel to it- pure fun indeed to see this 8

Great shot but very little movement apparent. 5

great shot, but would liked to see the top legs cropped out!

I really like her happy smile. You might consider cropping off the top part of the image, where the two sets of legs are showing, and, if possible, placing the little girl a bit more to one side (so she has either some space to fly into, or some space from which to fly out).

Not really getting a feeling of panning in this shot
