The iron benches at the start of a “bike” trail. Multiple arcs. Played with a couple of filters including a radial blur. I tried cropping it down to one bench but I didn’t care for it as much.

    Wow! I love this. It looks like a Lensbaby shot and I’m sort of enamoured of them right now (as you can tell from my blog…). I love the radial blur effect, I love the color saturation, I love the strong contrast. My only teeny tiny beef is that it looks like it needs to be rotated just a touch clockwise. That may just be my strange brain, though.

    I like the 2nd bench included in the distance, gives it depth. Maybe true about a little turn clockwise, but I have a hard time keeping things straight when there are other objects in the shot that are either angled or appear that way. I like seing the road or driveway in the background too.

    Wonderful composition and effects…I love all of those arcs and how you created such great depth…this really turned out awesome!

    Great composition and I really love the radial blur. I’m like Julie; it looks like a lensbaby shot. Great.

    You just want to sit down and relax on that bench. Lovely shot with lots of depth.

    I like the radial blur a lot! I think it really adds to the composition and was such a good idea. I love the contrast of textures between the benches and the tall grass. Makes you think!! Great job.

    The blurring really makes this photo. Nicely done!

    Nice shot, and yes it could stand a little straightening, I’m glad you included the second bench which now gives it a sense of depth.

    I like the effort you have taken with this. I agree with Julie as it feels to my eye if I sat down I might not be able to get out of the chair! The depth of field is interesting with a blurred effect and I love the second chair.

    I like it too, a little blur or twist on things can be good,
    good Job.

    The second bench, the blurring contribute to a nicely composed image.

    It’s very nicely processed. I wouldn’t have been able to tell it wasn’t done in camera if you hadn’t have mentioned it. 🙂
