The operator of The Wipeout, next attraction over, was kind enough to give me a private lift 30 feet above crowds, and yet my favorite exposure was this take from the asphalt looking up. I like the colors in all my attempts, but this vantage point emphasizes a recurring circular theme.

Too bad the bottoms had to be so dirty. Other than that I like this one. 7.

Great viewpoint and composition. Love the repetition of the circles.

Great color, nice focus.

Good composition... May have had stronger impact if the car was a different color against the blue sky. 6

Great angle and framing - I really like this one. Lovely blue sky behind it all too. My only criticism is that it's lacking a little colour. 9 - floyd

Vertical composition was a great choice for this.

i think it would be okay to touch up the scuzzy bottoms of the ride

In the forums, there is discussion of "good" to "bad" childhood. Aparently some people are having trouble with the bad childhood photos. Personally I love them. I can relate better. This photo portrays a bad memory from my childhood. my dad had forced my mom and I to go on the ferris wheel. she was ready to give birth to my little brother and I was scared to death. the darn thing got stuck and we were at the top. All I can remember was screaming at the top of my lungs for what seemed like hours. LOL. funny how different things mean something different to everyone. I like the angle of this and the placement and frame filling is great. lighting is a bit dark on the bottoms of the carts, but that can't be controlled. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

Interesting perspective and great focus all the way through. I haven't figured out how to do this kind of shot with my camera yet. Not sure I would have known exactly what it was without the title.
