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?

Very cool shot. I love the contrast between the two men, real and poster, while the poster is so large and the real person is very small. The poster is in formal suite and tie and the real is in dirty gean and polo...I can go on about the fantasy and reality...
