My sixteen year was enjoying the sun set from the swing. She was pumping so hard that it was the sound of her pant legs caught in the wind that got my attention. I liked the shot and then realized the spiritual parallel that can be made. She is getting ready to launch herself into that big outside world and she'll do it without a net.

I love the composition in this photo. The subject is compelling both Dangerous and Playful.

Nice, love the colors. She´s a bit too close to the edge of the frame for my taste though but I gave this a 7.

Nice capture - Love the colours and slight movement - Just can't help think a real winner has been lost here - She is just a little too close to the top of the frame which makes composition a little awkward - I just feel photographing her when she was going out with her head back would have added some real drama and also just adding a tad more black background on the base of the shot would have grounded it. Still nice but I do feel a better pic could have been gotten.
