Children's park surrounded by trash.. and traffic.. the blur at the bottom is due to this picture being taken in a moving car..

I, also, am drawn to the people in the distance. I'd suggest cropping some of the top and right sides, maybe some bottom. Just tinkering with ideas. It is a very sad picture though...

If that's all rubbish (garbage) in the foreground then that is VERY sad - SIGH!

I'm a huge fan of B&W, but this one has me wondering if it might be better in color, if you wish to focus on the trash that is. As B&W, it's a bit jumbled, but my eye goes to the two people seated with their backs to each other and it resolves into an interesting comment on man's isolation from both others like him and his environment. Or it could just be a picture of a children's park. :-)

Oh my, you've certainly captured the ugly side of life.....why is there so much trash next to a playground? It's a very good photojournalistic photo, very clear and detailed.

Kinda sad and such interesting contrast to see a place that should have happy children playing enjoying childhood -- yet -- there's rubble, trash and no kids. The stark black and white enhances the mood and that contrast even more.

I also find it interesting that thru the rubble, you can see pretty water, and people sitting at a picnic table. Quite a dychotomy in this photo. I like it!!!!!

i like the composition a lot in this. the DOF and contrast are very nice. my favorite part of this picture is the little hint of humanity with those tiny distant figures in the background.
