This is an interesting image with a story to tell. The yellow meets the challenge, with some character to boot!
I'd prefer to see the subject and building not so lined up and centered. Maybe positioned so the eyes follow a diagonal line. Of course there are many different angles to pursue.
Someone mentioned the colors not being saturated enough. I disagree. Actually the overcast day helps the saturation.
DOF is good, although, another possibility would be to have the building out of focus...oof.
Overall I think you did a fine job.
Best of luck!

Great subjects! The merry go round is great but the old building is also great (an old school?). The building kind of acts as a supporting subject... if that makes any sense. Too bad there was an overcast that day, it would have been nice to see some more saturation in colors.

I like this, good composition, and original idea for this challenge too.

A nice juxtaposition of school and merry-go-round. Try experimenting with the horizon line. It's almost in the middle now and perhaps could use to go up or down (probably up).

I find the building a bit distracting. I think a view looking through the roundabout, so it appears like a yellow forest might have been interesting.

Good image. Seems so lonesome.

I like the idea, but the school house sidewalk shelter really screws up my eye.

I like the idea here and enjoy the shot but I think I would like to see the playground equipment more close up....I don't feel like the building in the background adds to the image.

Look like my old playground...... a little haunting.

Good capture. I'm not sure about the building background, too sharp, I suppose. Or it doesn't relate to each other. If so, it's not in my reference.

Nice one.... I'd recommend desaturating all the colors but the yellow and it might be really cool. Nice pic!! 7.

I like this shot, because it tells a story without asking. The picture is perfect. Good job.
