I like this very much - well seen - a mundane scene brought to life by good composition and lighting Smile

You are going to do some good work with this lens Viv........the dof really concentrates the eye on the subject, but still lets us see how it fits into the surroundings.......have some more

I should be sitting there.......we could be sipping brandy and telling tales! Listening to Christmas music and comparing lens as we fell off laughing to the pavement. Lots of stories to be told about that bench..........

This is nice Viv.. I love the bokeh. You've done well with this being hand held.

Just a thought, how would it look if you would crop out the legs of the bench so that the eye is only focussed on the bench, and in crisp black and white?

Excellent lighting on the bench, Viv. Great patina from all those bottoms. Fabulous image - I think we're going to love your new toy, alsoSmileCat
