Ok, Shooting Info on the original park bench: 1/3200 sec, f/1.4, ISO 100, Exposure compensation 0, shot Raw, tweaked a bit in DPP and Photoshop.
I went back to this bench this morning. I must have been 10-12 feet away from the bench when I shot the original photo. I'll leave it to someone else to explain the size of the bokeh in both photos.
I shot this one with only a little more knowledge than I had before. Shooting info almost the same but with an Exposure Compensation of -2/3. Yeah, it's a bit soft. I was working harder on the composition than focus, I guess.
