It was my wife's birthday and I bought her flowers..... way home I was thinking of this scene of flowers left behind on a bench... I searched for a nice looking classic style bench and did some shots. This one really comes out

A picture that tells 1000 stories.

I like how you got the bench in perfect focus and the flowers a little out of focus.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

I like the story idea and the angle of the bench adds visual interest. I think you could have gotten at a lower angle that the bench filled the frame. The bench slates would still be going at a diagonal like you have the beginnings here but the leading lines would be stronger because it would fill the frame and lead the eye directly to the left behind floral bouquet. I think it would be better visually if the flowers were in sharp focus like that of the bench. Hmmm, I wonder it the story would have an even stronger emotional impact if the flowers were wilted showing the passage of time - he waited a long time but she never came.
