I like it.Itís a good shot and I like the idea.
My only criticism would be that it might have better if the boy had been two paces back. But such is life & photography. We canít always have it all our own way.

Something very surreal about this which really does attract me .... I think the fact that the backgound is all sky with no trace of land is hwat does it.

But .... I want to see more both to left and right in a glorious promenade-orama. I know I can't but I want to.

Rob has a fair point about the placement of the boy.

I like the fact that all the veiwer can see through the railings is cloud which adds to the effect you were after - all passing along on the journey of life - death

interesting

Mmmmm .... methinks the background sky has been added in.

Sneaky but effective Wink

Mmmmm ...methinks Dave is quite correct or at least the sky has been, shall we say, extended.

Thank you all so much for you very generous comments - much appreciated.

A strange but appealing surreality about this - the fact that the clouds appear to be emanating from a point somewhere below the promenade only adds to the strange attraction of the image.

I agree that it would have been good to have the boy standing clear of the sitting subject, and perhaps to have had the man walking into the frame rather than out of it.

good shot
First class Robert, I can see it as a massive poster as people drive in the city, a bit like a Pepsi Cola poster

Just come across this and glad I did - a wonderful image, people's lives unknowingly frozen in time. I'll put this into the readers' choice gallery Smile

It has the look of a Vettriano painting. I don't like Vettriano but I like this. Well done.

You've captured the three ages well. Great composition and the beautiful processing of the sky gives it a painterly quality.
