    Perhaps you could practise the rule of thirds for a start. Selection of an interesting subject, perspective, angle and composition is very important. Establish a foreground, the subject and a background, then frame and shoot. The white balance in this shot is off, unless you intend it to be so. Shoot more and you see the improvements, cheers!

    looks like just a snapshot to me.

    if u shoot head on with the chair. you will eliminate the tree and lamp post behind. the bushes behind the chair will frame your chair instead.

    May i suggest taking from a slightly higher angle from the diagonal side. Perhaps that will add a feeling of invitation of ppl tosit on it, which after all is what benches are for.

    Also, maybe can zoom out abit to give a context of where this is?

    Nice.. managed to capture a bit of "feeling". I can feel a sense of loneliness and melancholy in the pic, which I like

    I like the foreground, the reflections from the water droplets after the heavy downpour, and the shadows on the ground.

    You might want to pay a bit more details to the background.
    The vertical black lamppost that cut across the pic, the blue/red signboard, and white light spots are distracting. Next time can try to take from different angles. Alternatively, can use a larger aperture to give more background blur.

    Noticed that you are selling off your D3100, hope you are not too discouraged by the comments in this thread!

    Hello kmitbp - Comments and Critiques coming up..
    Let start with the good stuff..
    1. If you want to create a sense of loneliness, peace and quietness.. the orange tint is just right..

    I just read the Comments/Critiques from Adnix AND I AGREED with all his COMMENTS/CRITIQUES!! - no point repeating most of it again

    Just to add.. in addition to different angle to remove the distracting background/larger aperture.. you can also try a different bench (at a different location)..

    I just happen to have recently posted a few shots based on benches.... you might want to have a look at
    some other shots with benches #1 - #3 - #8 - #9. Hope it will be useful to you..
