Classic shot, can't believe it was taken so recently! it could be 100 years ago. Very good use of B&W. It might benfit from a closer crop though. You should enable workshop in manage->edit so we can play around. Very well captured, and welcome to TE!

Amazing old-fashioned shot. It has gone straight to ma favorite list :-) The composition is excellent, with those charming little girls (sisters, I guess), forming an extremely interesting symmetrical image... a symmetry that is broken in a peculiar way, by the chain on the right. This element suggests a difference with one of the sisters that I feel simply perfect. The woman standing with a child next to the chain is a little bit distracting, though.

This image has such a wonderful, 'old world' quality to it. I find it amazing, delightful, and friendly!

wow, a real classic shot. This one is real good. The B & W works very well. Mabey you can make the picture a little bi tighter. Well seen.

Very-very well seen, very-very well done – and welcome. Amazing old atmosphere – B&W works very well.
There is something "Henri Cartier-Besson feeling" in this image
I like that there is one difference between the girls – the color of the skirt... I quess this image could work also with very tight framing.
I would like to know something about the camera/film this shot is taken with...

I love black and white photos like these. Very goode composition. The little bit of grain adds a lot of atmosphere. Well done!

If I had no idea when this shot was taken I would say 50 years ago! Very good capture. Your theme was nicely framed.

Le genre de photos que l'on a plaisir à regarder longuement... Le N&B donne l'accent nostalgique qui touche, une certaine douceur, tendresse, très belle image Guillaume!
The kind of pictures which we tend to keep looking attentively... The B&W gives a melancholic accent, a certain feeling of softness, tenderness, very beautiful image!

A wonderful and engaging picture Guillaume. Very well seen! I really like the motion blur of the feet vs the stillness of all the rest that is included in your composition. Brilliant! I only would like to suggest to crop the faces of the crowd in the public, as well as the woman on the right, but keeping the face of the child that she is carrying. It would create a anonymous atmosphere in which the viewer of your picture doesn't bounce between the two lovely hats and the eyes/faces in the crowd. If you enable a workshop I would happily show you what I mean.

Great shot. Looks like a poster. The tone is well-chosen but most of all, your subjects are not aware that they are photographed so this picture is truly wonderful. Candid...a classic.

L'image donne l'impression de voyager dans le temps. Il y a aussi une spontanéité qui me plaît beaucoup. Une image émotionnellement très forte.
