Whenever you see this round strangers in front of a store, you will know the store is 'Target Department Store' which is the Canadian subsidiary of United States-based discount department store chain Target Corporation, formed in 2011 to oversee the company's Canadian operations.
They are nice to look at but I found it is too dangerous for pedestrian to cross the sidewalk especially the kids because they like to run and jump. Imagine if they fall and hit their heads to the stone balls. I may have to express my concern to the Corporation.
I keep the way they look at the moment I took the picture, no PP works on them even though I should
remove the distractions from the image, but I do not want to because I do not agree their presence for the sake of safety.

It's funny how these red balls set on the white snow remind me of the Japanese flag. Nice perspective and interesting composition.

Beautiful composition with lovely colours and perfect exposure. The balls do look lovely but your note of concern is justified. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.

This is a good perspective on those red balls with the oblique line. They really stand well over the snow. I wonder if they could make them of a soft material like styrofoam or something like this. That would resolve the safety concern.
Have a great day and thank you for your nice comments.

This is a smart and attractive composition. You have followed the "rule" that simplicity is often the best solution. The red "balls" are nicely seen on a diagonal and the effect of their brightness is enhanced by the white ground. The narrow glimpse of yellow paint is a fine details.

nice the view as the contrast of the red balls with the snow spreading on the ground.I like the good presentation as the creative perspective.

Very nice minimalist composition, and I have seen similar installation in the North Italian town Como. Thanks for idea, I'd like to show my version of the balls too.
Good contrast of the red stones and the snow. Well seen.

nice idea to use these red balls in a line like a subject. I liked the texture of the snow in the ground and the contrast between the colors. nice job.

Good frame and perspective.
Your photo is curious.
boa (6081) 2014-01-22 12:39
a good idea to make this to an piece of art in your composition. I like the diagonal depth and the eye-catching red colors in contrast with the white snow. Maybe a tighter crop(10mm) to the left to get rid of the dark objects would have improved a little bit, but that is just minor details. Excellent idea, Tfs!
Have a nice evening/

You show a gift here that I do not have, and that I envy you for having -- the ability to see photographic composition in every-day elements. Perhaps if I study your work here and others' I might gain some insight into finding these fotos in my daily life.

Lovely, colorful stone balls taken from an excellent POV. A truly pleasant photo that puts a smile on the viewer's face.

Bonsoir (ou bonjour ?) Anna,
J'aime bien les photos qui représentent des compositions un peu abstraite. Rarement une note est jointe et là ce n'est pas le cas de votre photo. C'est bien présenté et bien capture. Bravo.

Volume and perspective is a the best thing in photography compositions
nikkitta (14992) 2014-03-24 16:48

queste palle rosse colpiscono l'attenzione, inoltre mi fa piacere vedere un po' di neve adesso che qui si soffoca dal caldo....
