    Thank you for all your kind comments! What an honor among such fantastic entries.

I should have thanked the gentleman for wearing such an attractively colored shirt.

Thanks Bernie, so close yet so far....

    I like the idea - it's such a peaceful spot. I would have been inclined to crop closer to the figure for a cosier view.

    Solitudness is clear here. Well composed. In my favorites.

    dk - unfortunately, there was someone else sitting on the bench to the right.

    Like your subject matter. Wonder if you had shot from more to the left in your frame, thus capturing more the the bench or benches, and as a bonus, separating the man from the tree. Think I would have preferred that look.

    Meets the challenge very well.
Love the position of the person

    I wish you hadn't added the bit about the screaming children. All of a sudden the solitude disappeared. I know you can relax when there is noise around you but not you own grandkids. Otherwise an excellent photo and in my TT.
