On the same "Purim" street carnival, this young model was constantly trying to imitate the pose like painted on the sign, on BG wall's.
The sign reads in Hebrew: "Llalenya, cloths-gallery".
This taken me several shots to achieve the moment you see here...
A 16:9 aspect ratio, cropped upper part by just a bit.

Très joli panoramique pris devant cette boutique de vêtements. Peut-être un peu difficile d'imiter la femme sur l'enseigne car elle est très jolie. Belle présentation et merveilleuses couleurs.
Toutes mes félicitations,

She is almost there but not exactly in the poster. It is fun to take street scenes like this.I like the cheerful atmosphere , brightness and colors.

I wonder how many hours stay still, they have to do endless hours coaching. It would be great if the composition capture make the same move that the girl makes in the sign. Joyful composition.

The presence of the people is showing a daily activity. The point of view is showing the action of the model. The morning light is making the colors to stand out.

The scene of daily life is cleverly framed, and interesting. Light, sharpness and colors are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Once we understand about the imitation, the photograph takes on a new significance. Yes, I can see it! The positioning is good, especially as I would presume the imitator is on a float. You have achieved a good balance between the two and created a nice diagonal movement between them.
Have a good day,

good street scene, she looks like a statue indeed, I like the moment you captured and the contrast to the woman painted, well seen,

I like shows of mimes and live sculptures on city streets. This beautiful golden lady. And among the people can see a veritable mosaic of races and nationalities. Photos I really like.
צהריים טובים. אני אוהב פנטומימאים ותוכניות חיות של פסלים ברחובות העיר. הגברת זהוב יפה. ובקרב העם יכול לראות פסיפס אמיתי של גזעים ולאומים. תמונות שאני מאוד אוהב. שלך.

A very original composition of the atmosphere of the street in the city, such as personnel poses imitating statues, with plenty of suits, is very common on the streets of Madrid, in all tourist areas, are curious and in some cases striking.
A magnificent and beautiful work.

Holà my friend Ike and many thanks.
The main attraction of course is convied by the "stereophonic" greetings of the two ladies;
the angel and paper doll of poster.
I'm quite surprised of reading "SALE" in showcase instead of the Hebrew traduction.
Sunshine enhances the colors for a convincing festive mood.

you captured a funny scene in the right moment, beautiful light and a shot of quality with beautiful colors and incredible sharpness, even framing is perfect, great job...

un sujet 100% TE, un peu festif, sympathique en tous les cas. Un cadrage un peu juste avec des personnages coupés au mauvais endroit.
mauro61 (52623) 2012-03-16 7:55
artisti di strada che catturano sempre gli sguardi dei passanti con i loro costumi e la loro gestualità che in questo caso risulta molto simile a quella dell'insegna di fondo.
Cricri (103101) 2012-03-16 12:07
Une atmosphère originale de ces personnes posant comme une statue, et c'est pas des plus facile a faire, bravo l'artiste, un choix du cadrage, bon détails et lumière

very colorful and attractive street scene.
I like as always the presence of the text in a foreign (to me) alphabet this adds so much exotic feeling. Personally I think that taking more of the people in the street could make it even more interesting but of course I don't know what was going on there ::
Great composition, well spotted,
PecoBud (3824) 2012-03-28 13:36
What a fun photo you have here. Playful colors bring this photo to life. Great light management and superb POV Ike!!

I liked the mute dialogue between the alive sculpture and the drawing of a woman in the wall of that store. nice detail of the place around.
baddori (19195) 2012-08-10 23:22
Now also in Cagliari center, and I see in Israel.
Decorative properties but I think I would not be capable of this.
Seams for exhibitionism? or ostentation of meditation?
The quality of the photos have integrated crowd to the subject, and not separate them as often.
The color and nitdezza close the photo story.
With "careful and witty friend."

a lovely capture of a fleeting and shifting, peaceful and carefree daily scene in a commercial street. Your framing makes the scene intriguing as well, stimulating a thoughtful and interesting interaction of very different images of women. I like very much the vividness of the scene, your effective lighting and colour management that (together with the lady's smile) make the image cheerful and pleasing. Sharpness is excellent too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great month,

Even with a motionless person as the main focus point, there's a lot going on here Ike! It all works in harmony though and has some solid character appeal. The side by side comparison of this woman and the drawn figure from the signage is quite an interesting display, almost feels like a stare down! :) The liveliness of the streets is felt with the people in passing, as well as the bright and colorful shops as it's been framed for maximum effect. Well done, very eye-catching indeed. Thanks for sharing this slice of daily life. Have a great day.
Best regards from Arizona,

Very good scene of carnival Ike, nice costume I like also the shop sign with specific hebrew letters, a postive scene of joy and peace, excellent light and pov, all the best, warm regards

Very interesting human-sculpture, well positioned in the frame. Interesting that the store window has the english word sale written in Latin alphabet. I have seen a similar phenomenon in Turkey where stores announce their sales in English.
