This slide was not actually very tall or steep. I wanted to try to re-create (exagerate?) memories I had of an unusually tall slide which, as a child I was afraid to go down. Thanks for your great comments. Although my over all score wasn't so great I feel I imparted the feeling I wanted to, and that's what its all about!

Great viewpoint and angle producing great abstract lines, shapes and colour.

Great angle and subject. Where are mommy's feet? Shouldn't she be waiting at the bottom? :) Lovely colour and framing. Well done. 8 - floyd

Interesting perspective, really like the reflection.

Very nice... Great lines... I can feel the height... Very well done!

this is a darn steep slide. I'm 23, and I'D be scared. lol. the angle is very powerful. great job keeping annoying glare off the slide. I think the reflections add a bit of symetry to the already very symetrical photo. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

I really like this idea.
08/27/2002 05:17:00 PM
Good idea, but the slide is too short to help me make believe this to be true. The change of perspective by camera tilt is clever, though, and for a moment one can feel that unpleasant feeling of heights. Good picture, focus from here to eternity (almost).

Couldn't like it more!

This shows great creativity and effort on the part of the photographer, but the angle is too severe, and, IMHO, distorts the shot, because it looks way steeper than any slide I have ever seen.
08/26/2002 05:49:00 PM
Excellent view...
08/26/2002 04:38:00 PM
I really like this picture. It is definitly childhood without a child! I like hopw the angle of the slide is distorted to look like it might to a young child. Great picture!
08/26/2002 04:27:00 PM
Nice. Love the perspective and colors. Score 7 Kee
08/26/2002 04:20:00 PM
This picture envoked such strong feelings and memories, both in my own life and remembering my children, you definietely captured the theme.
Composition and framing are good.
08/26/2002 03:59:00 PM
Gee I remember this perspective from when I was a child. It was a LONG way down! You've got good focus for this type of shot... haven't figured out how to achieve this yet with my camera. Good color, balance, etc.
08/26/2002 03:30:00 PM
the saturated colors really make this stand out. good job at making it look really long and steep. karmat
08/26/2002 02:23:00 PM
Super bright colors, terrific!
08/26/2002 01:44:00 PM
From this perspective, it's a miracle that any kid ever made it down a slide. Wonderful colors and perspective!
08/26/2002 11:40:00 AM
It makes it seem REALLY big and steep - mscott821
08/26/2002 08:45:00 AM
you made it look really steep, excellent job :)
08/26/2002 05:03:00 AM
Thats funny. Is that slide really so steep or did you work the angles to make it that way? great job. It reminds me of the kids at work who won't go down the shoe slide.
