So many musicians in other's submissions this week so I decided to try something different and still need a helping hand from Mrs rpn.

The shot was taken in the midday sun with strong contrast and shadow also I'm not too happy with the background building so converted it to mono.

Sometimes it can`t be helped with a BG, but turning it to B&W has made this a nice image and good that Mrs RPN stood in for you.
Thanks, Dave. The aperture was set to widest open at f2.8 but the background is too sharp for my intention. Sometimes I think those Fuji lenses are too good. :)

Hi Stan

Great minds think alike, at least on the swing. The strong directional sunlight we are getting this time of year is hard to work with, But you have nailed it mostly.

Nice one Stan. Interesting that both you and Pete have posted swings so close together in the thread, but quite so differently.
That's a cool bit of silhouetting you have going on there. One thing I might have changed in pp was the poster on the lamp post, but that's only a minor personal thing. (y)

Great shot Stan!:clap:
You definitely made the right choice for the mono look....I suspect that building would have been a little too distracting otherwise.
Great silhouette aswell...(I think that's what Dave @-Oy- meant!:LOL:)
Smashing image indeed!
Thanks, Gareth for the nice words.

Thanks, Tim. Now that you mentioned the poster I just didn't notice it at all.
