    Last night I was just looking through my old photos (old meaning a month or two ago, haha) and i came across this one...so i put it into black and white, and altered the contrast a tad, and this is what I ended up with :)

    Yes, it is here all right, and I quite like it. I don't know what it was like in colour, but the black and white seems to fit it better, so I say. It took me a while to understand what I am seeing, but now I do. Nice theme.

    I see it just fine. I like the angle. And the B&W gives this empty playground a melancholic flavor.

    nice light on the swing set!

    yep b&w alters the mood of any photograph. I think another reason it might give it melocholy feel is the because the barren trees in the background - subtle but it adds to the empty swing set. But i love the lighting on swing, thats whats 'gets' me about the photograph.

    I like photos like this because it provokes questions in me -
    why is the playground empty, where are the children? etc.

    nice work Nytmair :thumbsup:

    well i'm glad to hear the photo is showing up and my hosting is not broken :lol:

    thanks for the kind words, and i definatley thought the B/W looked better than the color version for this particular shot too.

    At first I wasn't sure what I was looking at, but then I realised. :)

    Nice shot.
