Terje, I will have to be honest that it isn't my taste.

I will try to explain why.

I don't understand the message you are trying to convey in this image. If the playground was suppose to be a happy place than it would be nice to see children playing and having fun, if the message is something else then I am having hard time reading it. Composition wise I don't know what the focal point of the image is, I assume the playground is the focal point, perhaps if you had a chance to shoot it again try to concentrate on either the swing or the slide, focus point may be better defined then.
I also assume that the soft-dreamy effect was intentional, IMO it doesn't ad to the image.

For alternatives I think you may consider shooting when the light is better, to either give your composition good shadows, or fog to create mistical feel to it, and children to give it some life. Since this is close to your home you will have plenty of occasions to shoot and reshoot again, I am looking forward to seeing your future attempts.

Default To Homerhomer: Hi Peter...

Yes I do have a few messages with this one, part from having just plain fun with the camera ;)
One part of the story is our weatherconditions in Norway these days. Pretty grey stuff, and it's ONLY kids that actually bring life to our surroundings. I finished work at 17, so then it's empty...
I didn't want to put too much information out along with this upload in order to get some different aspects, and of course to get som words around the technical part as well. I might be wrong here about doing it this way...

Most probably you'll see some more images from this place ;)

Thanks for your critique, and I can see your point of view.
Much appreciated!
