Indeed, two different worlds depicted in this picture. A very creative use of the poster and very skillfully rendered in b/w. Imaginative street photography - excellent!
Kind Regards, Ann

you´re right-this clash is eye striking!
On the one hand the photo is very sad with this old,poor man.But on the other hand you were able to create outstanding artisic effect by juxtapose the man with Coca Cola poster,which stands here well for consumerism and well-being.
Concerning the technical aspect of the image-I really like it in B&W and enjoy not the first time:) your perfect treatment in monochrome.
Have a nice sunday

wow, great framing. Intelligently cut off the colours, which may be distracting here and may not create such illusion as a perspective. Nice light/ sharpness/ depth... A nice imagination, executed properly... Enjoyed it a lot. Tfs.

An immaculate sharp B&W image, Valter, corner of two diff. "worlds".
The old man was drawn to yet another object beyond the camera, maybe not aware of your presence.
A smart advertising, as it looks up-side-down but the written name of a known brand is leveled.
Fine scene spotted, and well applied.

Hello Valter - This shot speaks powerfully and words are superfluous. I even think the pole running from the top to the bottom of the frame has a place here as it divides the shot and, to me is, a metaphor for economic barriers in the world. Fine in B&W. Warm regards Rosemary

A very striking and immediately powerful image with a story to tell. The juxtaposition of the two images makes a documentary statement, with the iron bar somehow adding to the effect. The expression on the man's face, although in shade, also seems to comment on the situation. The picture really does say something about how ludicrous this world is. As if there could be any meaningful connection between the poor man and the Coke image.

una delle due realta' e' crudele e ingiusta, l' altra non lo so. Mi piace molto la semplicita' e l' impatto forte della giustapposizione presentata nella tua composizione. La colonna ed il lato del poster separano decisamente le due persone che per forza guardano verso direzioni diverse. Ovviamente le separano tante altre cose ma le unisce la tua composizione/giustapposizione. La definizione e' spietosa, l' illuminazione e la monocromia sono meravigliose. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,

You made a fine observation here and used it well for a good composition. What an absurd poster in an absurd world. The old man and the Coke ad are one metre and a world apart. I think the message of this photo comes through stronger with the colours removed.

Instant hit, and the image is a reality in my country.
Bang on target!!
With life's ups and downs, with the black and white, this image shall remain a reality. The gap between the poor and rich shall never cease, I can grantee.
Shot of introspection and photojournalism.

Indeed, excellent observation of this truly sad scene. No more words needed. The scene is a perfect presentation of your theme. Very well done! TFS.

la differenza tra le due realtà è così evidente che sono posizionati all'inverso, ma quella che si vede nel modo giusto è la vera realtà.
Una foto pregna di significati, messi in evidenza dalla bella composizione e dal b&w.

Une image qui parle d'elle même, triste réalité , bonne gestion de la lumière, le contraste du N/B qui convient parfaitement ici

No wonder this catch our attention with the additional over-sized prop that absolutely does not belong there perhaps! Its split into two parts the rhs has a cheery feel while the lhs is the opposite and so well juxtapositioned making the flow work well. This is the greatest fun about photography, the subject is always there and it's up to us to observe and make the shot. Excellent, very funny observation, an opportunist image that adds humour to photograph. A nicely observed piece of street life. Excellent catch, Congrats

I'm OK but very far away from your place. I like this outstanding monochrome photo. Superb composition, combination of two different world, the poor and the well doing. All very well framed in portrait format. Greetings, Miro
