Superb! I had to add this one to my favorite photos, Donna! The effects (buzz?) combined with the fantastic color, exposure and composition ... phew! I love how the composition leads my eye to that one little guy with his arms outstretched .. :D

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shot! The Orton really makes this seem like a magical shot - a perfect childhood memory. I always loved the big swings when I was a kid (even as a big kid now). Beautifully seen and rendered Donna!

Congratulations, Donna! I remember seeing this one on your website. This is such a neat shot! Takes me back to my childhood -- although, I still enjoy the swings here in my adulthood! You really capture the spirit of such a fun ride with the color and the effects! GREAT job!! :)
