Lonely Bench

I am taking a photography class in an effort to improve my shots. I took this shot at the Clemson Botanical Garden. This lone bench appealed to me sitting quietly and lonely under the bare oak tree. Winter is not my favorite season and sometimes I have trouble finding interesting material in the winter months. This shot depicted all I feel about winter. Lonely cold, little color. Possibly the shot would have been better if I had used a telephoto lens and gotten a closer shot of the bench, but I also liked the tree. 50mm lens at f/2.8 0.013 sec.

This does a good job of conveying the bleakness of the season. I've seen a larger version of this and really like the way the light hits the ends of some of the branches.
