After Challenge:

Wow, I am totally amazed. I love this shot. In fact I already have framed as a 13x19 in my house. My hubby loves it too. This is in Central Park. Kentucky not NY. I love living here. I get so many opportunities like this one. I was driving my kids to school one morning and their school is right beside the park. I noticed the rays of light coming through the trees. It was amazing. I didn't have my camera and didn't have time to run back home to grab it. I had to get to work. So, I decided that I would take my camera with me the next day and pray for the same conditions. I was rewarded. I dropped them off and zoomed around the block back to the park. I fired off about 15 shots. I had a hard time deciding between this and two other out takes. But I am so glad I did.

Thank you all of the wonderful comments. I am truly honored.

one of my favorites this challenge - great use of light and shadow to eliminate any main subjects

Beautiful light you've captured, but the quantity of playground equipment makes the picture seem crowded and disordered.

so much for advanced editing...
is it that you should make the trees look unreal?
08/28/2006 10:59:40 PM
Magical :) And I know that it belongs to one of two people.... which one is just a guess though! Good luck against "the competition" ;)

Beautiful picture, but I wouldn't consider this subjectless - it's a playground. Love the picture and the mystical look!
