Great shot where each element of foreground and background adds something.
Nice lines and colours.

At first I didn't notice, but I just noticed that all the swings aren't the same. There are the 2 regular swings and the 2 "baby" swings. There are 2 things that make me think this was taken at a public park, rather than at a school playground. And maybe I could be wrong, so just ignore me if I am (and it doesn't affect score BTW, this is only an observation) Schools usually have a fence at the "edge" of the playground, and they usually don't have those baby swings. I do NOT let title affect my ratings, but I think if you were going to sell the photo or something, people MIGHT feel decieved. Personaly I don't care if the photo was taken at a playground, park or prison. It gets the point across, and very nicely. I like the angle and the lighting. You did a great job of getting the chain parallel with the edge of the photo. Very nice shot. Good luck in the challenge.

nice...I like this although I think the background is just a little too out of focus...I mean I know it's supposed to be less focused but the bottom right hand corner sort of bugs me. Overall great set-up though..nice lines and contrast in this. 7 KDJ

The second swing in focus would have been much better

I love the way you have used DOF. I also like the overall composition and lighting. It has an artistic quality that works well in the overall shot… (8)

nice dof.

good perspective but a little blurry on my monitor.

Good shot, I like the blurred background. Others have done this, but you did it the best.

Wonderful DOF/color, composition. Love this shot. Score 7 Justine

A little too cropped IMHO. The swings don't look like they have any room to move which makes the picture seem too constrained, too static.

Wow. I really like this picture. The depth of field and the colors are perfect. Good luck. 8.
