This is my first submission to DPChallenge.

I'm sure the subject will be done better by other, more experienced, people but here's my effort!

I particularly liked the mixture of strong colours and the early morning sunlight of this shot.

Thanks for all the comments.

Next time I think a little bit of post-processing needs to be done, particularly cropping to get the best possible image.

Thanks again.

These are different looking swings. I like how you have other things in the photo besides just the swings. The angle and lighting are great. very nice depiction of an aspect of childhood. Good luck in the challenge.

Lovely colours and nice angles to the frames.
I find the partially included horset things, the blue material at the left and the fence at the back distracting to the image of the swings themselves.

interesting shot :) This photo, like many others I see, could possibly have a higher impact if taken from a lower angle... like from the viewpoint of a child. Children see things from a different perspective than we do :) Making your photo from that same perspective could possibly create a higher impact in this challenge... good shot :) - jmsetzler

The poles make for a nice jumble of lines, but they start distracting after a while...

I like the composition here, except I wish the horses weren't in the background. Or at least no the one on the right. Alas, I imagine the city was probably not volunteering to reorganize their parks for your shot. I like the lines and angles in this photo. I also like the contrasting colors -- that's to be expected on a playground, but it's nicely captured. one of my 4 favorite swing photos -- each of which I tried to jusge on it's own merit. 7, just-married

Sharp picture. Nice repeating swings! Too bad the front swing isn't in the picture all the way.

somebody told me it's a good idea to have things around the edges of the photograph, partially cut off, something about leading the eyes towards the edge and out of the frame. i was always centering the subject, was told show just enough to give meaning, no more. so the swings and the hobby-horse thingies are a little cut in your picture, and that might be a good thing.

I really like the composition of this photo. The slanted lines of the posts is an eye catcher. Good job. 7.
