I was just there a few days ago and recognize this scene. Beautifully captured. The bench placed a bit diagonally adds some interest. Well done!

Great perspective and color. That habit of tilting the viewer's look at the subject is one of your hallmarks, I think.

Lovely, Karin. I was reminded of Union Station in downtown Chicago. Something about the weary resters on the benches...

Great piece, Karen. I would love to see how these are framed in your 8 show. (always the chore)
