This was taken out at the Lyon Family Farms. Nice place to take the kids. My nephew was about to go down this slide. I also eventually went down it. Pretty fun.

I had to clone out a lady. And I tweaked the colors. But nothing extraordinary.

Hello from the Critique Club

An interesting image that meets the challenge.

Yep, there's certainly no mistaking that is well and truly a diagonal! I would concur with your commenters remarks. Although the slide dominates all too clearly the background is also rather too busy. Given the wide angle lens you are using a shallow DOF is not really possible in which case a different viewpoint would have been more effective. I think given the lovely sky I would have gone for a lower viewpoint isolating the slide against the sky and removing the ground level background distractions completely, this would have given it more impact. As it is it is really a family snapshot recording a day out with the kids on a slide, you need more than that to make an impact here.

Thanks for your submission, Sid

Certainly in your face diagonal which I feel could have benefited from better light (earlier or later in the day) and a shallower DoF.
