Awesome picture Teresa! The sun rays look great along with the very green grass! Congratulations on a great score and finish.

Very cool. I'd like to see just the big tree just a smidge more to the right. 8

I like how the tree in the center is sillouhetted. Then the sun light coming through gives the playground a soft warm feeling.

Love the light in this image. I believe you could crop from the top down and eliminate 2/3s of the dark tree foliage and make this a much stronger composition.

Alot of visually emotional qualities set forth here. Well done. Loved it the first time I saw it. Should do well.

I love the magical quality of this image. I just wish the big tree had been a bit less central.

Fantastically atmospheric, beautiful PP. The transformation of the ordinary is one of the great skills of photography. One of my top picks.

It feels unbalanced, leaning to the right a bit. Otherwise lovely.

Nicely balanced even and the soft light is gorgeous.

I am a little sick of the word 'Ethereal' however you have defined the definition of the word with this entry. Really pretty. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 06:29:30 AM
this is excellent! I want to capture this one day, too.:)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I don't know if the softening effect I think you added to it (forgive me if I'm wrong) makes it look like an underwater scene. I would like to see it without it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 12:35:00 AM
Pleases the eye with this capture, and I like the misty feeling it provokes.

I like the use of the soft focus here. Very dream like.

Wonderful light and colours - you've created something that looks like a dream...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 10:45:12 AM
Phew! Another lovely 10! This is lovely and goes to my favorites. Did you mean for it to be tilted slightly to the right? My right brain self thinks that swing chains should obey gravity and hang straight. The light here is a joy to look at, the memories of summer and childhood and my childrens childhood, the wonderful sillouette of the big tree. Ah, this is the color of the world I grew up in, made all peaceful with all badness and pain removed. I just LOVE this photo!

Hauntingly beautiful composition. The post-processing has transported this into another realm of artistry. 9 from me.

Amazing light
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is so dreamlike and playful, but at the same time, it's almost lonely and desolate...the empty playground. i Love it.

something about this sais "foreboding"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
