My Crew in a farmers field in view of a vista of spectacular fall colours. I like the way the sky looks like it is moving in the shot. Thanks to my daughters and wife for climbing the wire fence and braving the journey through the ravine to get to the location of this shot.

Hope it does well...I have been away for a few challenges, it feels good to be back in the game :)

Great stop action shot. Congratulations on your high finish!
A little more room on the top would make this perfect.

Great timing! Both the girls look great, but the guy's position in the middle seems sort of akward. Either way, beautiful photo, and very fitting for the challenge.

I like the black of their clothing against the colors of the sky and landscape. Nicely captured. Reminds me of a CD cover. 7

Joey, models facing backwards wont hide your identitity!

I keep coming back to this image as I think there is something intriguing here. I am amused by the people, clearly expressing the exhurberance, but I find it particularly funny because they look like goths or part of the hip crowd all decked out in black and to see them showing such unabashed emotion seems out of character, but refreshing. It is also interesting to see them facing away from the camera. I wish the girl on the right had all her hair in frame, but overall a good effort nd one of my favorites in this challenge.

great capture of this action

cool shot ... if you take out two of the models you might have a more affective image. this way it's a little corny and set up in my opinion. 6

Nice try. Would have preferred to see the faces and to have all the hair in frame.

Fanciful image. Lot's of frozen action here especially the girl on the left :) Great!

I like what you’ve done here. The models’ actions are well captured. The picture could use a little boost of colour (increase in saturation) though. Overall good job! (o:

Great shot! Skillfully captured!

I think it's wonderful. It appears that the autumn colours are approching the celebrants. If I could vote I would give it a ten!!

good jumps
a bit goth for a celebration though ...

Hohohoho! It's Coley.

I'm weird.

Nice photo!

way too staged..!!!

Wonderful action shot. Great capture of people jumping for joy. That is this photo's strength. It's weakness is that the viewers do not get to see the facial expressions on the jumpers. It would have made this photo all the more exceptional if the viewers could connect to the action by way of seeing the joyful/happy expressions on the three main subjects.

Love the way you have captured joy in this shot, love it. 9

Man they are happy about fall, they are prolly doing backflips christmas morning.

Striking image but perhaps would have worked better if the people were facing the camera. Brighter clothing probably better for "celeberation" too. 8

some incredible jumping there.

Oh this is wonderful!!!!! I love that the figures are in solid black. Great positioning. Good job. I think this gets a 10 from me.
