Nice capture. Perfect framing and composition. Sun light's direction is very much supportive creating shadow of the bench. Framing with border is added bonus here.
I think you increased some sharpness in post process.

Selection of B/W has been perfect to emphasize loneliness. Good angle chosen for the bench. A very sharp presentation with an informative note.

Lovely black and white image, your low viewpoint perfect for the subject. A mreally fine composition too, allowing the sense of isolation from the empty chair, but also the expanse of the open park behind. It looks like a stormy day with the way the trees are bent over like this.
Have a great day

Fine composition here, Indrasish, with a view over the park - but what made this attractive is the wrought-iron-work on the banch. Fine perspective well premeditated.

I know this is 'just' a photo of a bench in a park, but its attractive and comes out looking very appealing with the trees lined up in the bg.
and whats even better is the note. Wouldn't it be great to see a future photo of this park with all the elements you discussed.
lets wait for it!
