    Love it :) Got a real crisp DoF.

    Can I suggest the title: "Waiting for Sunshine": in that it want's to defrost AND it wants to work. But since it's winter, it'll do neither.

    Very nice shot there Hiren.

    I think you've taken a winner. Though, the background could be a little less busy. I find my eyes wondering around the image.

    The otherside is a lot more "busy", I was trying to capture the sun shining down on the dial. Didn't quite work out like that.

    wow i love it and the title is brilliant well done bindi,
    have you tryed bluring the back ground, this might bring more effect, and draw the veir into the the sudial rather than the busy back ground

    As said it my first post I didn't have access to my computer at the time so no post processing was done.

    Great idea for a shot, and well executed on the main subject. Good angle and use of DOF. However, the background is just far too distracting. I realise it may be beyond your control, but it stops me from really loving a picture in a way in which I might.

    I can't disagree more. It puts it in a situation, instead of in a "black box" which is unrealistic. If it's waiting for sunshine it would be outside as well.

    We'll have to agree to disagree, then. I just looked at the image afresh and the first thing to happen was my eyes went straight to the background, darted about a bit, then came to the fore. I dunno, whilst I see your point about context and you could read the deserted swing as also needing teh sunshine, it's just too busy for me.

    I agree with Hwulex there, however I still like the image over many of the others there.

    Looks like my picture has created quite a stir. :) My aim was to try and get the sun breaking in between the two houses shinnying down onto the sundial, but it was pretty chilly that day and the cold spread to my special place so I didn't hang around too long.

    Anyway despite not being that happy with the background myself, it was a exercise in DoF which was my main "thing" to learn so in that sense I'm pretty happy with the end result.

    Good to see it sparked some debate in here.

    I like the frosty-ness, that's caught well. Needs less DoF though :D
