    Unusual title, I know, but damned if I can be more creative at 5am in the morning.

    I don't know why I like this photo, but I do. I think its cause it has such good lines in it. And the sunlight being straight on the front really works, cause then the shadow lines up in back.

    Very cool. And the name is fine. It was really either that, or "Life's a bench"

    Definitely unusual lighting, but it works.

    Thanks. I have had some say it is boring as it is just a bench etc etc, but to each their own. I like simple images.

    Have to say I'm not a fan. There are no smooth tonal transitions. It just goes dark gray...middle gray...blown out. I'm all for simple subjects but I don't see anything particularly interesting about this bench or the way its represented. I also find the tree trunk immediately behind it to be rather distracting; or at least it adds nothing to the shot.

    I would like it more if the bench was exactly centered in the shot and if I could see all of the shadows from the back.

    Simple is good though

    And I kinda like the lighting
