This bench feels very abstract. As if it's not even a bench at all. I stared at this image for a very long time, and it never FELT like a bench. It feels like a balcony - a very high one at that.
The sheer height of the bench, relative to it's surroundings, makes it scary or intimidating. (Especially because I'm scared of heights.)
At the same time, the bench itself feels very friendly - clean cut modern design, new looking, nice smooth wood.
The woodsy/forest setting is actually inviting too, but it's very hard for me to get past the implied altitude of the bench.
