wow...great shot! I love the angle here. Childhood? Absolutely. The sky cooperated well with you for this photo. Focus and framing are also very nice. Great shot and good luck in the challenge.

Nice shot, well framed, good focus. You probably would have gotten fried for having children in the photo, but it would have been great to have the motion of the rail cars going by. 9 Swash

i think this would be better if u got the screaming people going down the track, otherwise its not that exciting, sorry ..4

well, I definitely am too old for that. I know that now... Great picture, love the red of the letters as a contrast to the blue sky....D. :o))

Nice colours in ride and sky - like this idea. To explore it further have you any taken from on the ride, looking down the scarey slope or such?

To me, this evokes roller-coasters, but not childhood. 3 Jak

This would have been much better if you had caught the coaster at the top of the tracks. Colors are vibrant, focus is very sharp.

rollercoasters were some of my favorites too :) I wonder if this particular photo would have been more powerful in a vertical orientation so that it could include more of the track and that huge slope? :) good shot... - jmsetzler

Nice shot. I wish it were less sky more roller coaster; but to get enough, you might have had to crop out part of Cyclone, which I'd have been reluctant to do. I would be interesting to see how the photo changes if the focus were on the rails as they start to dip instead of the name of the ride. Good title. 6-7, I'll see what I think as the week passes. just-married

I really like the way the flags match the red, white and blue of the coaster and sky. Great use of colors. 7.

When fear was fun ? I still won't ride in those nightmares on tracks!
Nice picture!

Coney island sucks, the cyclone is unsafe

Good, but I wonder if a different angle might have emphasized the dramatic height.

I like the photo and would give it a 7 or 8, but it doesn't really say childhood to me.
