The Neue Pinakothek in Munich. Outside the museum a large poster hanging on the wall. It is a painting (detail) of the painter Johann Friedrich Overbeck entitled "Italia and Germania".
The dreaming girl right in the picture was of course the main reason for this photo.

You has two subjects on the same picture, the painting as wonderful artwork, but also this young girl exactly wait on her friend.
Wonderful composition, excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Art mirrors real life or, maybe, real life mirrors art. Perfect capture of this opportune moment. Well exposed and ideally framed.

a cool composition. You're right, the girl really makes the shot and I like her expression that seems to mimic the one on the painting.

Without the girl the view of the poster would have been nothing. Without the poster the view of the girl would still have been quite nice. Together they make a fine trio of attractive faces. Well seen, as usual.

This is a delightful photograph, so well seen and so very well taken!
Your composition is wonderfully simple and the simple lines of the steps and stonework, running parallel to the bottom of the frame, do not distract from the two main subjects which are perfectly placed. The large poster shows a picture of idyllic beauty and harmony from ages past but the dreaming girl on the right brings us right up to the 21st century with her modern and relaxed clothing. I wonder what she is dreaming of?
Lovely light and colours, perfect composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

A fine picture with both this impressive painting together with a young girl. I like the way she holds her legs along an imaginary diagonal line up through the eyes above.

A fine piece of work! And of course you're right: without the girl sitting on the steps, you wouldn't have a photograph. Great juxtaposed composition.

Conflict of the generations, I appreciate well the WS though the main picture has sweet soft hues.

Once again you captured a very good street photo! Great composition with the poster and the girl sitting on the stairs, that seem completely lost in her thoughts and unaware of your presence! Very well seen!

You nicely united two topics: art and daily life. I like the composition with the poster in the center and the young girl on the right side. Well done with an excellent colors, light, sharpness.
