A slightly frustrating shot. I can see what you were trying to achieve but I don't think it's quite there. For a start there is too much blank wall, it squashes everything else down. The top half really neds to be cropped away.

Then I find my eyes are having to search too much. The graffiti itself is the main subject, the ladies are almost incidental. From the title you clearly want us to thiink about them, and what they are doing, but they aren't a focal point for the eye

Overall, for the juxtaposition and humour then I think you need to have the ladies filling the frame, from a lower angle, and the graffiti as the background, possibly even slightly blurred by using a low f number.

It works for me I find the image would not be the same without the ladies. To crop or not to crop? that is the question.
