The swings were my favorite in any playground. I'm no longer there. But the swing is.

Nice use of colors. The moving swing makes it even better. 7.

I think the direct shot hurts the depth of field. I do like the one swing swinging... adds interest.

Interesting shot - I like how the red and blue really stand out, and also the one swing in movement, but I would have liked the composition much more if the shot had been cropped just enough above the moving red swing to crop the house out. lhall

I like the fact that your swing is in motion............that sets it apart from the other swing photos

I like how there is one swing out in the photo. It's not just a photo of a bunch of swings. I like the difference in colors as well. There is some busy-ness in the background, but not your fault, if we could all choose our backgrounds, I'm sure we would. Lighting, angle and focus are great. I am wondering of you off centered it on purpose. I think it would be nice either way. Off centered, or off set. great job and good luck in the challenge.

the background is a little distracting. great idea though ;-)

I do like the fact you have one of the swings in motion - definitely adds something. I think that the other swings are too obscured by the chains, perhaps a viewpoint just slightly to one side would improve this? I'd also prefer the tops of the A frames to show as they are almost in shot and such a strong shape that my eyes are lead up to where they would be - out of shot!

I like the idea of the single swing moving.

Just think of the hours spent there....! Many. Nice colors, good composition. Score 7. Kee

Perhaps some motion blur would have been nice - did you try it?
