Travelling in Munich during the festive season. The city is full of people. Too much hassle. I will probably not use the camera today. But then I suddenly see an interesting scene and take a picture.

A good shot taken with a perfect timing to capture this photographer in the right position and create a really amazing shot. The illusion is so perfect that I lately realized that these ladys were part of a poster until I saw the "little" man crossing the image. Very good work !

Nice to see new posts from you again. This is so much in your personal style :)
Love the size difference from the real to the fake people and just the overall look of the scene. Its a fun inner city shot

Finally I had myself a good laugh today. This is what I always hope to find from you. That must be the smallest man in Munich. Another perfect observation. Thanks a lot.

sembra proprio che tu abbia messo in risalto la "grandezza" del mondo femminile rispetto a quello maschile.
Bello scatto, originale e simpatico, un ottimo colpo d'occhio.

you didn't even have to put your name on this one, wolfgang ~
it is clearly your trademark clever and delightful juxtaposition of real people vs the world of advertising.
this one is especially clever, with the poor guy is dwarfed by the statuesque models looking down their noses at the little man ~ that is, if they can even find him on the sidewalk (or in life.)
great sense of humor and irony in this shot, thanks for sharing your pov of this moment with us :)

Great timing and opportunism on this shot. I like the way the man is dwarfed by this huge billboard. I love the expression of the 1st model on the left..she is going to say as the man reaches her " Who are you? huh!". Had a good time watching your photo. Well spotted and well taken!

This is a super shot to have seen and grabbed. The man is so well caught between the women in the poster. An amusing image that catches attention - very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

Wow! What a superb shot here! The models look like goddesses with their posses, expressions and fantastic dresses! Excellent street life scene. Eye-catching result achieved! Bravo!
Have a nice day!

Your title and the picture reminds me of a country and western song, 'When Two Worlds Collide'. A well observed daily life situation perfectly presented. I like it a lot.

AN amazing shot here !
It takes some time to realize that the real person is the small one !!
AN excellent shot really !
willperrett (5648) 2013-12-01 4:59
Yes I love the tromp l'oeil (excuse my French!) effect of the huge poster behind the pedestrian. I guess it proves that size matters!

This is a fabulous picture in which timing is everything. How fortunate you were to have your camera at the ready to take this just as this fellow was walking past the huge mural or bill board.
What really excites me too is the fact this this chap seems to have a camera around his neck and yet he is the perfect subject of a photograph!
Very well taken indeed and for a quick shot it is of remarkable technical quality with excellent light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition très originale. Le passant semble bien petit devant ces dames qui le regardent de très haut comme certaine de leur beauté.
CLODO (28662) 2013-12-01 7:02
good to see you back here, with your witty eye in the Lilliput world; the man is perfectly located in the image, just between the giant ladies.
See you around
parvatibb (1307) 2013-12-01 12:47
brilliant! very well composed.
jhm (134540) 2013-12-04 4:11
These young ladies as advertisement are very big against the walker in foreground.
I find your picture very pleasant
Also excellent perspective and depth picture.
Very well presentation, nice done, TFS.

Hello Wolfgang,the improbable situation that you have portrayed is a haven amongst a sea of blandness,very imaginative and a delight to view.
Best regards Les.
rigoletto (34109) 2013-12-12 14:33
hello wolfgang. these giant ladies could be the fantasies of some men, which could be called "the lilliput dream". very smart timing and cropping, and a stunning effect. always good to see your original photos on TE.
danos (82715) 2013-12-13 8:50
nice the snapshot with the passing by 'small' man to contrast perfect with the huge models.Excellent the light and the colour maangement of the image.
emka (72344) 2013-12-15 14:49
Hi wolfgang, Very attractive photo with this big poster and rather small figure of the man. Nice observation and splendid realization. Perfect timing, good shot!

I'm glad you did, it's another good street scene. I like the composition a lot, with the huge models and the man clamly passing and ignoring them! You captured him on the right place and the difference of sizes makes it really funny!
InasiaJones (31256) 2013-12-20 11:49
You are in fire!...
Catching up in your gallery, I am absolutely impressed by your latest street work.
It is so inspiring, I would run into my own city centre with my camera, if I knew for sure that I wouldn't be killed, or could keep my camera for more than five minutes before being mugged.
What is interesting in your shot, other than the clever juxtaposition, is that the light has the same orientation. Awesome!
COSTANTINO (50756) 2013-12-20 22:53
lovely capture with interesting details
I liked this presentation and its dynamic
contrrast perfect moment of timing

fanni (14377) 2014-01-04 5:25
excellent timing!! a Lilliput 'citizen' among three huge Gullivers :))
bona (12201) 2014-01-04 6:23
great photo of the outdoor and the man walking. Today we are living in the woman world and we are getting smaller in front of them. A nice composition.
npecanhuk (60246) 2014-01-04 6:42
Another great photo job! I just love it!
The title is totally appropriate to this image as well!
Sharpness, exposure, colors and composition are all excellent photo qualities!
TFS - congrats,
