Hi,

Good work with capturing the roller coaster in motion. I would prefer the shot taken in better light and closer to the ride where you can actually see the thrill in the riders' eyes and their crazy actions. That would bring out your intention of showcasing the thrill of a roller coaster ride much much more effectively. However, since you chose to shoot it late in the evening, this works more towards showcasing the scenery of a theme park rather than the thrill involved. You are right about the trees and lamps being a distraction. Perhaps you could find a way to crop the bottom bit away. Overall, not bad at all... I'm a fan of back-lit silhouette style shots myself. So good attempt yeah... Cheers!

I prefer the original cropping. Reason being ....

Ok. roller coaster, people expect thrill and excitment hence photos should be warm and shows the action and mood. That is my thought.
Your photo is nice in a creative sense. You crop it tighter, all is lost. No interesting creativity and lack of action still. Not here not there.

That is why the original crop is better for me.

THanks for sharing your interesting photo. :)
