Picture taken in Paris East railroad station. Sometimes advertising really hits the target, just because of the contrast with the ambiant atmosphere.

Hey! this is a superb shot! The contrast is really "punchy"...Simply great!

Wow, contrast is really wonderful here. The pink jumps out at me. The background completes your composition. Very nicely done!

The oasis of color against a black and white background works very well. I would like to see just a little more of the background however, but this is a very good shot.

Very nice picture that gives an other view of the railway station.
I like a lot the contrast between the sophisticated advertisement and the rough

Nice shot Jean. This is not what I would have noticed at all, but I am glad you did.:-)

Great contrasts indeed. And not only between the the colourful ad and the grey background, but also, as your title suggests, between the end of 19th century steel architecture of this station roof and the very up-to-date fashionable 3rd millennium oustanding billboard. The clock is a reminder that time has passed... this was obviously not intended by the creators of this ad but the clock says: "hurry up ladies, you have to seduce them, quick!". I love this shot!

It's a superb and original composition, you have really shown off your "creative eye" here. Great idea, and a technically perfect execution.
