This is another natural phenomenon that made me late for work. I took an alternate route and just kept my eyes open. I thought a playground would be a good place to photograph the frost. I actually didn't even know the challenge topic at the time =)

I'm so glad this evoked positive feelings viewers. This weather can get pretty rough, but sometimes is worth documenting.

This is really really cool. Literally and figuratively. If I were voting, I'd definitely give this a 10 (sorry I'm not). The clarity, the DoF, the composition, the tones, the concept, the execution... I don't like the title.

Excellent. My backside feels cold just looking at that seat! Back to bump, favorite of the challenge. I want to see a little brother double dog dared to sit on that seat naked! 10

Wonderful sharpness. In the top 4 of the challenge for me.

Great use of dof to create this image displaying wonderful depth and perspective. I like the fine details of the frost on the chain and the swing's seat. 8

really good job evoking a couple different feelings here, that of cold and loneliness
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2010 05:51:29 PM
Wonderful! The shallow DOF really works here and the snow contributes to the "magical" atmosphere. 9

Fantastic shot - my fave so far. Great DOF and detail on the frost.

Great perspective brought on by the down low view. THe cold sines throught not only by the frost but also the blue/grey tones. These swings are just waiting for spring! I would sure like to see this in the top three!
