The Times Square gave me a lot of amazing topics for photos.
On the foreground you see the sculpture of George Michael Cohan (1878 – November 5, 1942), known professionally as George M. Cohan, was an American entertainer, playwright, composer, lyricist, actor, singer, dancer and producer.
You can see also alternating view of this monument in WS.
But I don't know this young boy on the background unfortunately.

Rendu sur le plancher des hommes après un petit tour en hélicoptère, Time Square est un endroit idéal. On peut certainement y passer une journée entière et la prendre sous tous les angles. Ici, on mêle le réel avec l'image et c'est bien fait.

It seems like you had a good time in New York. Honestly, New York is not my cup of tea. the Metropolitan Museum is a real attraction, though.

particolarmente interessante l'accostamento tra la statua ed il poster che fa da fondale per il vigore dei due soggetti.
Una bella foto di strada realizzata con molta cura ed ottimo uso del colore e della messa a fuoco.
Ciao e buona giornata

Another nice NYC composition! I have photographed this statue, but with the view shown in your WS. I really like this POV with the giant advertisement. The big walk/don't walk sign is also great. Mr. Cohan certainly has a lot to look at there in Times Square. :-)

Hello dear Serghei,
So happy to have you as my neighbor today....well, my "today" is now your "tomorrow!" :) I'd like to caption this shot with "Hey, you looking at me?" ha Love the perspective, the compressed focal length plays to the strength of the size differences, bringing them next to one another in a compelling manner. A strong visual effect. Seems like an endless supply of opportunities in Times Square, yeah? :) Great realization and presentation of history and fashion combined. Have a wonderful day ahead.

You really chose a great point of view here, to have the man in the poster looking down on the statue, it’s almost like two separate worlds have collided here, and the man in the poster does not understand what the statue represents. An excellent daily life scene, with an interesting twist to it, thanks!
All the best

I´ve seen it yesterday,but had to prepared to work,so a little bit late reply.
And again I could repeat my first sentence from my previous comment of the Rockefeller building.
Brilliant vision of the scene,excellent perspective and close-up and finally spectacular and eye-catching visual effect!
Times square(part of it) seen differently!
I like the creativity and expressiveness of your composition!
