Hi Rory;

My idea of a portrait on swings : a kid swinging high / done from a distance with lots of room / and not looking at, or paying attention, to you at all. In other words - a Norman Rockwell style image telling a story.

Your image is too ordinary to score well and her head is too centered left to right. She looks like she was having fun and the background was nicely out which makes her stand out. But there is no impact and no real story. I hope to see you re-do this and post again.
