    thanks for the votes and comments
ysal . by cropping the top I would have lost framing of the trees and it would not look in a heavy industry scene.
I missed the bright light a reflection off a security mirror, i saw that after entries closed but i had removed a person in red which was more distracting. see outtakes later
In both of my entries I used people to show size and context. the bench in this one didnt work without

    I like this a lot, I envy the incumbent on the bench - what a great spot to read a book. It could do with a bit more pp work on the bench. The path leading in to the shot works well.

    Well captured, and with a great history to tell. The reader is obviously enjoying this unusual seat.

    Very pretty scene. I like the way the greenery provides a partial natural frame and the shape of the path is interesting. The bright light in the upper left is a bit distracting.

    A pleasant scene. Between the man and the interesting S-curved path, the dark bench is able to draw little attention.

    A nice scene, and a substantial piece of furniture!
Maybe raising the shadows on the bench would've helped make it more prominent.

    A very sturdy looking seat, it should serve the sitters for many years to come. The location looks conducive to pausing and enjoying a sit in the sun - with or without a good book.

    I think you could have cropped out the top, right where the path disappears. The house and the bridge is distracting. I love everything else about this shot.
