There is so much to see - and sometimes it's worth a photo. Of course people are the most important for me. The inclusion of environment creates sometimes a new context.

Yes, this scene is worth a picture.
Very funny with the two dogs but the visiting dog isn't much interested in arts :)
Well observed. Clear and sharp presentation.
Best regards, Paul

Splendid capture this - so much to see and so many connections to be made between reality and poster girl. Fine image, perfectly presented in black and white. Like the title as well, very funny.

Delightful street scene and an great addition to your impressive b&w portfolio.
I bet many passing people stop to have a look at that poster but your choice of this particular couple is perfect, especially the dog, almost the same size and colour as the one sitting on the girl's lap.

Another touch of the "tromp l'oeils" here! Is it a poster or advertisement hoarding on the street? I thought at first it was in an exhibition of some kind. Clever and well seen as ever. I'm so glad the couple had a dog as well!

si dice che quando le cose accadono una volta, può essere fortuna, ma quando accadono per tre volte è bravura. Tu hai trovato molte situazioni di questo genere e di sicuro non è per fortuna.
Gran bella composizione, con un'ottima versione in b&w che rende ancor più originale lo scatto.

Hi Wolfgang. I remain perplexed as to what I am looking at. The model seems to appear from nowhere, half substantial.Even the shadows of the woman and the dog are confusing. The quality and the timing of the shot are excellent and usual. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Street photography spirit! React promptly when seeing an interesting scene of human behaviour linked with the surrounding. Only the live dog is not interested!

Another lovely coincidence. It's an amusing photo which makes me wonder how you can always find these huge posters of people. To me that seems to be the most difficult moment when searching for interesting photo opportunities. The excellent treatment of the greyscale is also typical of your personal style.

This is a delightful and exceptionally well taken "image à la sauvette" in which you have somehow managed to have all the elements perfectly arranged within the frame to make a very appealing composition.
The elegant lady in the poster immediately draws our attention as she stares with those beautiful eyes straight down the barrel of your lens while her lap dog seems to stare directly at the real dog on the pavement. And those stares are reinforced by the couple (the man taking a photograph with his 'phone while the lady simply looks on) who are also staring back at the model. Only the live dog seems uninterested in the situation.
A very well captured image with perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness and I feel that the lack of colour really grabs our attention and lets us focus on the fine composition and the interaction between all the subjects. A wonderful photograph!

I like the originality of this photo, which appears to show the encounter with a gigantic woman.
Sharp details and well chosen b&w

Seems that you always find interesting scenes to capture! This is great, you captured them on a great moment and even the little dog is a little similar to the one on the poster. He must be wondering what they find so interesting about the other dog:)! Perfect in b&w!
stego (24132) 2014-09-05 15:26
Indeed... "There is so much to see"! Probably it would still be a good photo with just a couple looking at the strange photo, but you captured much more than that... And what a game of glances: the girl on the photo looks at us, her dogs looks to our right, the other dogs looks to left in a tense position...
TFS, regards, José.

I liked the composition a lot!
A woman, a dog, a couple, another dog, and their body expressions..
Superb composition, clearly executed..

A funny moment yet a very intriguing one, Wolfgang.
Excelently spotted this moment, a photographer taking the picture of another photographer with his cell, and a dog walk that became an encounter with an advertismnet included a dog, but merely a poster.
Fine shot, B&W format is fairly adequate to the stuation, but I'd like also to this in colors( my personal view, only).
Enjoy a nice weekend,
