Scenes from Notting Hill 1
I enjoy walking along Portobello Street, watching antiques, old souvenirs, art galleries, restaurants (good ones), always a pleasure to stroll along it
In doing so I saw the advertisement and the girls, must wait for other people (tourist) to cross the street, then, for an instant they were alone, noticing that the one not using boots was watching at them was a great luck for me

Hola Maria querida,
a very smart composition in every sense of the word. You combined the street scene with the graphical backdrop in an excellent way, it's great how you realized the visual impact of this scene and even noticed the reaction of the girl not wearing boots! The pole solidifies the composition and the lamp adds a fine contrasting detail. The walking legs create a playful, dynamic impression. Very apt management of lighting and colour. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Well observed and photographed scene. The background filled by the creatively composed pictures is awesome and made the view extremely eye-catching. Well done!

This was definitely a good place for a photo. With some luck and a lot of skill you found three girls that offered you a great chance for a good composition. The result is excellent. These girls really look at home in this photo, like the wall was made for them.

Wonderful repetition of patterns and shapes with superb graphic lements of the dark boots against the lighter wall. The fg trio add depth and animate the scene. I like the wide angled panoramic crop too. Tfs!

Excellent graphic style! Very nice that white overexposed on the graphics that make up the picture! Very beautiful!

Hola Miss Argentina,
So you're saying there are boots...where?? :) Oh my, such a woman's thing, I dare you to find a guy who would have taken this picture. jaja
My oldest sister is a self proclaimed "shoe whore," so I fully understand the fascination with women's apparel and footwear. Well, "understand" really isn't quite right...it would be better said as "tolerate" the fascination. hehe Of course, we men have our sports.
This is really a wonderful composition and capture though, merging real life with advertising. The dominant blacks & white scheme is broken nicely by the small bursts of color throughout. An interesting and well observed street scene, taken in full spontaneity and detail. Bravo! Have a great day ahead. All the best.
My friendliest wishes from the Northern half,

This is an excellent street scene you captured. Three beautiful girls are in front of the giant advertisement. The color tone is neat and enjoyable. I really like this picture.

Very nice capture of those stylist boots! I like the background, perfect for young women. Good composition and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Bonjour Maria et veuillez excuser mon retard.
When you weren't born, Nancy Sinatra sang "Those boots are made for walking"!
So I pleasantly imagine a streamer retelling that philosophic sentence, hung on wall above those dark pictures!
Quite a striking advertisement indeed!

C'est une superbe composition, bien observé.
La scène est intéressante, les acteurs complètent bien l'affiche.
Bon graphisme et ballon jaune intéressant.

i love this 'dynamic' building, and i thought the dominant white makes a nice centre piece for the frame... i guess there is an element of luck with the timing, but lots to look at with the pedestrians, together with the attractive flash of colours and the pleasing architectural detail in the background. Well seen and timed! Congrats

Muy bien compuesta esta original escena, de la vida cotidiana en la ciudad, todos esos carteles anunciadores, dan un magnifico grafismo a la composicion, las tres chicas como si estubiesen esperando a alguien, son un bonito elemento en la imagen y dan el toque vital.
Un perfecto colorido muy natural.
Una imagen muy luminosa y con una óptima nitidez.
Buen trabajo. Me encanta.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Excellent composition of the girls in boots.Very well composed photo with excellent vivid colors. TFS.
ikeharel (54273) 2014-03-16 3:03
A nice idea you had when taken this, and it would be fair to say that there was some excessive daylight on the white walls. So I managed a bit to correct this white shine in a WS, will post only if you will allow me.
Anyway, this is a fine corner POV, the three young ladies match perfectly with the subject.

Très spéciale cette affiche de chaussures, la scène des trois filles différentes, l'une semble intéresser par l'affiche, normal c'est celle qui n'a pas de bottes !!!, bien vu et réaliser
pili51 (1031) 2014-03-17 14:07
Una imagen muy original y muy bien captada.
Me gusta, es muy vistosa, gráfica y divertida.
El marco y el encuadre acertadísimo amiga mía.
Lo que más me gusta es que las tres chicas que has captado, no proyectan ninguna sombra, y se suman a las imágenes de la pared.
Angshu (55035) 2014-03-17 22:57
Interesting composition using the huge bill board which also makes the girls to be a part of the same scene. The combination of these two factors has been done effectively. The yellow lamp, for sure is a good focal point as well. Well seen and taken shot!

Well spotted, this scene is a great capture, love the girl's poses, with the poster behind.
Didi (55585) 2014-03-22 8:59
These boots are made for walkin'
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots
Are gonna walk all over you
Interesting high key
Waiting for your pictures
mkamionka (29776) 2014-03-22 15:22
very well spotted street scene. I like the background, it works quite surprising as we don't see the sky -it could have been done in an photo studio as well. The girls are introducing so much life here. I like to use the street ads in the photos but it is not easy. I think on TE I have just one taken in Paris.
jmdias (53561) 2014-03-29 1:53
interesante efecto de la imagen de las niñas contra la pared blanca con estos pedazos de imagen. me gusta la composicion.
Romano46 (16584) 2014-03-29 9:52
mi piace l'ambientazione originale di questa foto che arriva a creare una simpatica confusione tra la realtà e la fantasia.
Alle tre figure ritagliate che appaiono quasi sovrapposte a questo ambiente assai originale si uniscono capi di abbigliamento, altre figure e partic del corpo umano, il tutto in una simpatica composizione che appare quasi metafisica.
Complimenti per la bella cattura.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
