Too much to see in this picture.... I think this picture would work on a more human scale, rather than a birds eye view.

Nice, crisp and clear and I like the composition. It's an unusual perspective, and the very fact that there are no children makes it look kind of sad. lhall

Very nice shot. Such a small playground for being so well kept and fancy. With the trimmed bushes, the shaped play area and such. almost looks kind of odd in that way. The lighting is beautiful and I love the angle. Great shot and good luck in the challenge.

Nicely kept gardens but only 2 swings?? Lighting is a little dark but I like your angle and the choice to keep the greenery in. - floyd

I really like the height of this photo.Everything down there looks perfect. 8.

nice balance in this composition

I really like the way the greenery and the white park edging frame this shot with a sweeping curve across the foreground. The angle and colours are appealing.

I like the idea of the full playground shot, but the photo makes it feel too far removed (because of the distance).

Very interesting angle! I like the framing, alos. How did you get no kids to be there? Must have been at about 6 in the morning!

Kinda lonely impression

Wow, no slum here! A tad dark and I question the cropping, but otherwise, nicely done. 8 Swash

Great angle! The curves are warm and inviting, as if this space wants to cup children in its hands ... makes it all the more sad that no one is playing. Nice, soft colors, too. Very nice.

This is a different perspective of the playground theme... I wonder if some more impact could have been achieved in a closer up photo of that tisting slide? Good shot :) - jmsetzler

This image is very clean and has a surrealistic appeal almost. I can't figure out whether it is actually real :) It's either shot from high up but the grass doesn't seem to bear that out or it is a toy set up. Curious :) 6 Journey
