The eye contact with the woman and the gent looking at the sitter make such a strong inter-connection, Ken. Very good work.

I like the intensity that the crop brings, I might take even more off, from the left. The faces in the poster seem so much more alive, animated, active than the real person.

I'm not sure about the eye contact that Dave mentions. The two people in the poster are looking in subtly different directions, the woman directly toward the viewer, the man over his left shoulder and out of the picture.

The man sitting on the bench, as far as I can tell, is thoroughly disengaged, i.e. not looking at anything at all. In Magritte's surreal world his features would have been erased entirely, or replaced by an apple, and his anonymity emphasised by his wearing a black overcoat and bowler hat.

The photograph seems to have more meaning in b&w than in colour. It is quite astonishing. My respect!

Regards
Bill
