Nice shot Michael - It has a quiet timeless quality. I like the explanation as well.

Interesting. This is a collage of several images? I see evidence of photoshopping throughout.

Nope.... cloned out a branch onthe upper left because it was pointing the other direction and tweak the colors and dodging and burning and that's it

The left area is what caught my eye then had me looking elsewhere.

Is that bench actually that close to the road? Or is this a bike path? The small image is hard to tell.

I'd say work the clone job a little more and this would make a great office print.

Nice shot Mike. I like the mood. The looming oak seems to be just waiting for a bench visitor to impart some wisdom.

I see little to no Photoshop aside from a slight saturation boost and the cloning as stated by the OP.

Thanks Mitch! I was kinda going for a Tim Burton-esque look to this shot
