This is a superb and amusing composition. In a way it is quite simple, but you made a very good observation and used it well. The young worker is leaning on the wall in an elegantly nonchalant way and his body makes a curve exactly opposite to that of the loosely hanging poster. It's a bit like two worlds meeting, and the real world is coloured.
Very well done,

This is a really fascinating shot, Kasia, and I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more traffic. It is, first off, brilliantly composed - the worker, in almost a fashion pose himself, but responsible for the removal of the high fashion sign. Then there's the almost complete b&w quality of the shot, but for the worker who stands out in color. The title is the perfect complement to it as well. I might have been tempted to crop a bit closer at the bottom to get rid of the security camera, but then I guess you risk the hand, which is a nice element.... Either way, really artfully done.

This is a cracker of a shot! Very well observed and composed. The contrast in size of a man and poster and the colour/ b n w contrast too. Really very well done - this is a real beauty.

This is almost like a color key photo with the worker in color and the rest in black and white. The contrast between the mundane worker and his posh counterpart in the add is telling a real live story here. Very well spotted and nicely executed.
have a good time

the young man seems to say "let the place to the young ones!" while old picture is desintagrated.

You have a great eye for details. Composition
is great, the picture tells a story, it's
timeless and can be used as advertising for
some make-up product or watches.

this is a marvellous composition, so well observed and captured in a fitting vertical frame with harmonious hues and significant details. The different postures, colours and sizes of the men evoke fascinating contrasts and urge us to create a story. The eye contact of the falling giant is captivating as his serious expression under the circumstances seems to have acquired a sense of bewilderment:) A unique image, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Fajne street photo. Calkiem w stylu Erwitta:-) Powinno byc chyba w kategorii 'decisive moment'. Dla pelnego efektu lepszy bylby jednak jakis Lenin na tym bannerze. A, i czy probowalas w wersji b-cz.?/ Good 'Elliott Erwitt style' street photo! Didn't it fit rather into the 'decisive moment' category? Anyway, pity this is not W.I. Lenin on that banner. And... one more thing. I wonder how does it look like in b&w?
