Do/did like this perspective and the inclusion of the bench. I remember pondering this for a very short while, imagining myself sitting on the bench looking out to sea and thought you captured that 'moment' quite well. I gave this a 6 during voting.
Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
The image needs just a fraction more width, room to the left of the bench (maybe at the bottom too), in my opinion as the bench dominates the shot a little too much - plus because some of it (especially the fore) is OOF (out of focus), it (the oof) dominates a little too much at the fore of the image. Having said that, I do like how the bench is minimized somewhat in the image as a whole, because that does let the 'view' dominate - if that all makes sense.
I like how you have left the dark clouds in - they provide a good framing. The light on the rocks is unusually placed within the image compositionally, but does work. The lines on the bench lead you out to that.
Barely noticeable, but the horizon is out by a whisker.
Comments, Score & Placement Review
117/403 is a decent showing in a Free Study and at least you score over 6. 7.83 average score from your commenters does strongly reflect their comments - all of which seemed to appreciate your vision and how you have captured & processed it.
As mentioned above, a little more room at the left and possibly at the bottom, makes the 'expanse' grow in the image and as a viewer, takes you 'there' a little easier.
