This was a little closer to the original image I was working from, but also a little more abstract. Knowing that it is a bench, it definitely feels like a really long bench, but without that information I'm not sure someone would figure that out. However, I would say it is better compositionally with much better balance, and the vanishing point is very well defined. Subject does seem a little unclear, though, as I could see someone looking at the negative space and misinterpreting it as sunlight and rays.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
