Love the depth of field, crop, and composition (the path really makes the image for me, along with that lovely curled arm-rest)!

I think you did pretty well with the conversion. Thumbs up all around. Print it! :)

I think you did a great job, It would be beautiful as a poster or a card.

Yeah, I am thinking of getting at least 4 similar Mono/Square cropped images together and then printing them and framing them as a set. Just need 3 more suitable images :-]
Thanks for comments.

Bench photos may be ubiquitous, but your treatment of this subject is not. It is exceptional. Esq.

Probably would try to control the hot spot on the top left corner and a tad on the bush, otherwise looks good. Have you thought about giving it a vignette like a Holga treatment?


The devil is in the details...Especially at 100% crop!

Assuming I'm looking where you're looking... isn't that flare?

Nice.
There are so many different ways to frame something as simple as a bench.
Tight fit, Pulling back, Waiting for someone to sit down etc.

But this works well with the path leading to the bench, It stands out nicely in BW .
Good pic

See even benches still draw in my interest, Thanks for sharing :)


Whats a good photo: Is it pleasing to the eye?
