I know others will nitpick the composition, but you try repeatedly pushing a merry-go-round as fast as you can, with a camera hanging from your neck, jumping on, and composing the picture perfectly. I finally gave up and chose the best of the bunch.

And another thing while I'm bitching. Try finding a merry-go-round. It's almost impossible.

This image makes me think of motion and play. . . and it's making me dizzy! 7.

Nice Idea. Background is good (would have been nie if the other kids were not there). Not sure what Shutter speed you had, but the foreground kids could have been a little sharper to really make them jump out of the background. Finding the balance for shutter speed (sharp front but blurred back) is hard for these. Maybe speeding up the spin and quicker shutter may have given that better effect.
However, great idea for the challenge.
