A strong symbolic view! Women of the century, a compulsory image. lol Very good composition, a real nice realization. Beautiful colors and perfect neatness. Congratulations.

I like this shot – very well seen and captured. I like how it looks that two of the girls DON´T WANT to watch the ad...
I would frame the image tighter from both sides.

Funny pic. The girl on the left is twice the girl in the ad!
Could do with a 1 degree or so rotate to the right to straighten it up.

Well catched !!! What a symbol !

A great combination and it is very funny but there is a deep message in this too considering how ads gives us ideals we can never live up to giving us all sorts of problems like anorexia for instance. Well caught!

Keep walking girls.... ;) this shot could have been called "Inspiration". I like the "human" contrast. Well done.

12 critiques so far, and all from guys. . . hmmm, I wonder why :-). Anyway, I like this shot. It works on two levels. At first blush, there's some humor in the contrast between the real girls and the fantasy girl, especially the way the two girls are ignorning her. But with more thought, there's a deeper message, as Ebbe and others have noted, on the expectations that society creates and the problems that can occur when we don't or can't live up to them.
As for the shot, I find the building on the sides around the ad a little distracting, but I tried to crop them out and found the result to be strange. It became difficult to tell that what the ad was. I'm not sure what the solution would be. Maybe an even wider angle?

Boa composição... O nome poderia ser outro... " O sonho e a realidade..."
8:00 da manha de um domingo, as 3 ainda deveriam estar sonhando e o que V captou foi a imagem do sonho do outdoor Hi...

Gosto muito da sua foto Adilson, está muito boa, tanto ao nível da composição como das cores. Demora um bocado a perceber que é mesmo real, que não é montagem... Grande Ideia!!

A man after my own heart with an eye for including Big Adverts into daily life pictures.
These always look like shots taken instantly but you have to work at it and be on the look out for shoots as they are only there for an instant.
