Ohh this is so good! I thought for sure it was Breeee's. She is the queen of this type of photography, and since I just about think she hung the moon in photos like this, it's quite a compliment from me to be mistaken for her :)

Its perfection! Congratulations on 11th place!

I am starting to consider silhouettes with highly saturated backgrounds as cliche shots, however I still can't help but love the joy conveyed here.

Wow -- beautifully captured! I love the colors and the silhouette. I'm sure it wasn't easy to pull all of this off.

enthusiasm, joy, rapture - well done on the silhouette - i see just a tiny bit of halo around the subject from the sharpening, but it is quite minor

Is this really a senior? I don't know if I can jump that high and I'm 20!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I am so jealous. I am not a senior yet but getting there! I definitely see glimpses already of the mental freedoms that accompany the age group but the aches and pains of arthritis will, unfortunately, keep both of my feet on the ground for all my years to come. Great, great picture.

The ticklish reeds of grass completely add to feeling of free spirited-ness of the leaping girl. It's that very grass that makes this more than another silhouette photograph. Very nice!

Lovely, it immediately made me smile. And then when I read the title I smiled even larger. The colors give such a lift to this gem.

Really great shot! I would have cloned out the cord sticking from her back, it's slightly distracting. 9

A great clean image with the constrast of the Silhouette against the great colour through the sky. Composition is really good and her pose is spot on.

Happy, happy, jump for joy is what this photo speaks to me. Love the warm gold and reddish/orange tones which also helps strengthen the happy and sunny mood of this shot. Silhouette of the jumping lady and the fields are nice, dark and deep allowing them to really pop off the background.

Great action shot of youthful enthusiasm! Perfect framing as well. 9

I wish her other arm was defined in this shot - I LOVE what she is doing with her hand. Great definition in the grass too
