    Took this with the silhouette setting in the GF1 with the 20mm. I was aiming to bring out the metal loops of the see-saw and make an interesting composition.If I recall correctly it was f 1.7 / 1/30

    Please critique!! (and don't worry about being too harsh - I want to improve)

    interesting shot if a bit dark , try using a lightening tool in a photo program for the foreground and feather it into the dark background a bit that red would kick things up a notch if it was lighter and saturated

    im not an expert myself but thats what i would try

    not sure about that one - but I'm no expert

    Agree that it is a bit dark and maybe cropped too much - i.e. I'd like to see a little more of the background

    I like it, somehow reminds me of a horse from a distance.

    Not a lot I can think to suggest for improvement - if you like it then you've been successful imho.

    If you have a RAW copy, I would try HDR...

    Thanks for all the feedback folks. I'll have a tweak and see what I can make of it.
