Hi All.

I was @ New York - Central Park this summer, and while I rest behind The Met, I saw the (I think) lovely patterns.
It was taken on sunny-summer-day, and put the camera at the closest stable surface (the bench).....

I want to picture what looks like a dreamy - endless tunnel here.

Does it work for you guys ?
Please C&C on color & composition (or on everything, which I need to improve here).

Taken with 50mm, Aperture priority @ f/2.8, focus at second "circle" from front to give foreground and background blur.



Cheers.

I like the idea. But your "endless tunnel" doesn't sit well with me, because I can actually tell where the bench ends. Maybe can try a slightly a different angle so that the viewer really cannot see where it ends...

Hi all, thanks for c&c. (I am open for inputs to improve).

Hi Yatlapball, thanks for the tips, will note next time, or PP it to make the end of bench "invisible".

nice use of leading lines.
But would prefer a tighter frame as the greens on the right is very distracting.

Nice job. Certainly is a new way of looking at benches. Very creative idea.

A tighter crop would probably take care of the end in sight as well as the brighter right side of the picture...

Hi All, thanks for the tips, critiques and comments.

I hope the PS'ed versions of the picture are allowed by the moderators. If they're not, just let me know and I'll take 'em down.

Hi all, kindly C&C on the adjustment below. TIA.

Black & White version, with cropped right section to cut away the green and end of bench.

I'd prefer the coloured version.

I prefer the one without the crop. The green grass balances the colours and composition.
good shot!
