Here is my first post in the Critique gallery, tell me what you think
Very nice subject, but I think the background is a bit too distracting.
i like the DOF. the background works for the extreme vertical pattern you got going.
I love it.
i also think the backround is distracting. nice image though
I go with JonMikal here, saying: WOW, all those lines, all through the picture. That has been instantly appealing to me. However, with all the vertical lines I still miss the one horizontal one: the top of the swings. Don't know why I miss that one so...???
For that shot i used my old canon AE-1, it's old but it's good to learn on. I'm saving up for a new one though
I like the lines, sharpness and the DOF but it's too big to view properly.
Try to keep your images under 800x600 so that it will fit onto most people's monitors.
Really digging this picture, so many vertical lines it makes my head spin, very good
I love the idea, but I think there are too many competing verticals in the background which distract from the chains on the swings.
You could try reducing the DOF to blur the background lines, or possibly try taking the shot from the other end of the swings (of course I don't know what was behind you, so that may not be an option)
I keep coming back and looking at this photo. As I scroll down, my eyes stay on the swing's chain. I don't find the background to distracting at all. The title is fitting. I like it very much. Great photo.
I would have taken a wider angle compaired to the chains
