They are making stairs to reach the Moon, exclaimed one of the kids in the park where I was clicking water drops after the little drizzle.
This made me anxious and forced me look in to the said direction.
On the far away rooftop against the grey sky of the setting Sun, was some movement.
Well this was the imagination of a kid but Imagination is more powerful then Knowledge.
Sure this seems a stairway to Heaven/Moon......and the scientists on the right watching it carefully.

thinking saint-exupery style...
delightful counterlight photo with indeed dreamy silhouettes. could well be a scene from a marionette theater.

In french we name that 'ombre chinoise', it's an evocation of traditional shadow theater in oriental countries.

This is an original and very clever idea of great graphic and artistic beauty. A very interesting shot.

This is unique treatment! Looks like Shadow-Play on a stage.
The human figures, the ladder and the leaves, all in black on a white canvas... and the whole activity is at the bottom of the frame ... excellent.
With a matching,imaginative title and an interesting note, it is a marvelous presentation.
With warm regards,

I'd never have thought it's rooftop. Especially with all those plants:) Great stab at creating an artistic image, definitely successful. It does look special and thought-provoking:)
Thanks and best wishes

Very orgiginal and very well spotted. The silhouttes against the sky are really great. The sharpness is excellent. Normally is is a good idea to crop a photo with a lot of empty space, but this case it definitively part of the originaly of the photo and much better a more artistic as it is. TFS and have nice day!

This is a delightfully clever and thoughtful image. The silhouettes are perfect against the whiteness. There are a variety of interesting shapes and all distinct from each other with no cluttering.
Kind Regards, Ann

It's a good start, but they sure have a long way to go in order to reach the moon, I hope they make it! :) I remember when I was young and sometimes "forced" to play outside rather than sit in front of the television. Looking back now, I think it's one of the best things my parents could have ever done...it's important to have imagination!
As mentioned once before, I love silhouettes...and you've captured and produced another fantastic shot. The black/white cut-out effect could easily pass for a print advertisement, this has a really fun and attractive quality about it with these figures set against the stark white background. Not only a good observation, but a smart recognition of the photo opportunity. Lovely! Have a great day ahead.
My best wishes,

I concur with aleXundar. I see the same thing. Human beings all in black shadows working on a piece of land.
Great imagination, very creative.

The silhouette of the children aspiring to reach the Mood is cleverly composed. The edge of the frame serves as the ground for the children and the construction. The silhouettes of the plants are especially welcome in this composition. They had another worldly atmosphere.
