The b/w and weak contrast here make it difficult to distinguish the subject from the backgrounnd. Color, more contrast and/or different lighting (time of day) may have improved this shot.

Oh, so sad... Great atmosphere and composition, good use of B&W...

Good choice of B&W. Could be a little sharper focus on the slide and swing but other than that good job. 7.

Very sad and thought provoking. Say it isn't so, but I fear it is. (well done)

The fence in the foreground is good but the swing and slide are blending into their surroundings. More contrast maybe? Perhaps make things gloomier too in view of the subject matter. 7 - floyd

I feel so sad for you. My idea of childhood differs greatly.

Sad to see such neglect..... nicely portrayed in this greyish shot.

The fence does it, well done!

This one doesn't convey childhood to me. I don't understand the title with the photo.

I don't like the fence, although I appreciate fully it's significance in the subject matter. I like the overgrown nature of the shot, and the b/w really conveys the sadness and bleakness.
On the composition front I am struggling with a point of focus between both the slide and the other ride thing, and the cactii - the shot seems to busy for me.
PS. what is the correct plural for cactus?

Sad, very sad photo. The clutter of the background makes the subjects harder to see clearly. Is the fence referring to the title or did something bad happen to the child? If the fence connects to the title, it's a good thing, if not, not so good.

This is an interesting photo, but I find myself 'searching' for the subject matter... There is not much contrast in this image... everything seems to blend together. I think that this could have possibly used a few adjustments to contrast and brightness to make it puhch a little harder :) - jmsetzler

Moving idea, though the photo itself cold have used more contrast and maybe a less-busy background.
08/26/2002 08:38:00 PM
good composition and black and white ...leaves me sad though.

I don"t understand?? Frank Beckman

Authentic looking picture. Nice shot of the swing against the background bushes.
08/26/2002 01:50:00 PM
Very sad photo. Good content.
08/26/2002 01:06:00 PM
To me...this looks like a child looking through a fence at a swingset in someone elses yard, that has long since overgrown with weeds grass and sticks. The lighting is good. I would like to see the whole swing set. maybe a wider view of the same shot. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

I like the B&W re-endition on an old playground, very sad photo... nicely done.
08/26/2002 11:24:00 AM
Dramatic and sad. Love the B&W here. Score 7 Kee
