Ah yes... a trampoline and bungee cords, giving you the freedom to defy gravity at least for a couple of seconds at each jump. I thought this was a fun photo that gave the freedom to have fun to the little boy!

Taken July 9, 2004 for the Dispatch/Argus printed Saturday, July 10, 2004 in the Disaptch and the Rock Island Argus... caption

Going head over heels for Summerfest
Cameron Vetter, 9, of Rock Island flips upside down on the trampoline-bungee ride at the Rock Island Summerfest in the District. The trampoline, as well as a mechanical bull and a rock-climbing wall, sots $4 for children and $5 for adults.

Editing... resize, levels, auto color, sharpen, save. No Cropping, full frame...

One of the best of the competition. Simple setup and composition wonderfully conveys the exhuberance of freedom. Vivid, crisp, well controlled DoF.

Great example of the challenge theme. Whilst background isn't hugely distracting I think a plainer one or a more blurred one would work even better. 8

Great composition and framing. The somewhat skewed look of the windows in the background add to the feeling of disorientation.
