Walking along Ocean Blvd in Long Beach, I noticed that all the park benches were occupied, yet no one ever sat in the middle... always off to the side... All the Lonely People, where do they all come from?

To sit in the middle is to "claim" the entire bench for one's own. To sit on one side or the other is the less-selfish alternative. That's how I've always "read" it...

You pushed the saturation a little too much for my taste.

Nice overall composition. I really like the amount of color here. One thing that I noticed pretty quickly (and I don't notice this easily often) is the high amount of chromatic aberration, especially along the right edge of the tree. I'm betting this is hurting your score a bit.

The colors are much too saturated here. The over saturation has even turned the right side of his once-white sweater blue!

Auch, the colour is really overpowering the whole image. If you tone it down a bit, this could actually be a lovely shot.

Quite a nice composition but a different approach to the PP would have been better for me.
