The Focus is on the Bench

Even though there are other elements in the photo: the grass, the shrubbery, and off to the right a cement path and a glimpse of the lake. I purposely blurred those elements and kept the two benches in focus. In addition, the benches are front and center in the frame, and a stark black with a small amount of black shadow, all of which keeps the viewer’s eyes focused on the benches. I also angled the shot to avoid emphasis on the graffiti on the front bench and to show off the curvature of the benches’ arms.
