    Wonderful light and dark contrasts. The somber gold tones of the land contrast nicely with the bright blue and white of the sky. This beautiful image speaks of almost painful loneliness. Very artistic.

    Like how the steel barrier cuts off the beautiful sea/skyscape from the wooden seats, making it appear a more place.

    Love the contrasts and shadows. The metal fence gives the feeling of being trapped in a state of loneliness.

    I like the light and shadow...It has a feeling that the benches could speak of other times when they were occupied but now they are enjoying time alone to experience peace and solitude.

    Astonishingly good title - the feel is heavy - very lonely, and yet, utterly beautiful - a very pleasing, intense, arresting photo, and the sky is gorgeous - love the darkness, the emptiness, the sky...the sea.......

    This is an amazing capture. You've managed to shoot toward the sun, yet keep the integrity of the benches and the sky/sea colors.
