The sense of abandonment is strong in this which makes for a dramatic photo. I like photos of empty park benches.
Samarth: thanks laurie...i would definitely like to capture more like this one...

Very good processing! They look old and lonely. I think the trash can is crowding the frame a bit on the left.
Samarth: thanks martin...

Looks like R2D2 has taken up flashing in the park now that he is a washed up has been, I guess that the princess will be along at any moment for him to pounce, I must warn her! lol

Quite thought provoking this one, I like the relationship of the seat and bin. malwalker
Samarth: lol...

Purpose, like colour, leeching out of their existence...maybe there is something to be said positively about fleeing one's mortal coil before one becomes too vague and uncertain.
Very interesting picture and processing, Photosam.
Samarth: thank you ray...

I don't know why I find it so interesting that the bench is facing away and is in such a messed up place in the frame. And there are two subjects. Very new for me, I like it, keep experimenting.
Samarth: you have to make sure the tones are interesting...then everything takes care of itself...presenting the ordinary is challenging but rewarding...

J'adore le composition de la photo, la réponse du reflet par la deuxième bande d'herbes. Ainsi que l'harmonie des cuelurs et le piquet de la photo
