This roadside park always floods when we get a lot of rain. I drove by it the other day and immediately got the idea for this. Just shooting the park by itself only would have conveyed the idea of 'bummer' by 10%. By borrowing two little boys from a friend of mine from volleyball, the bummer percentage jumped to 110%.

Congrats on the HM :)

Kinda looks like Windemere View, but your "roadside park" description is making me think otherwise. Care to share the locale with a local?

Lovely black and white, full of interest and nice things happening. (Oops, supposed to be a bummer - I meant nice things visually).

It's all about the bench, dude. You have to have the subject sitting on the bench for maximum emotional impact.

J/K. I know how much a close 4th place sucks, trust me. Still damn good finish tho, grats!

This is just brilliant, you can see the little one's look of pure longing without even seeing his face. The b&w looks great.

This is great.

this is the best I've seen so far - best fit to the topic, b/w sets the tone and sharp image. Can't wait to find out what filter you used.
