This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)

Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.

This is one of my 10s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. A seemingly everyday scene but with an 'aha' moment. The boy bottom right is fabulous.

2. The bold contrast and deep blacks - many (including me) would have been tempted to bring out some shadow detail. You were right not to - the inky blacks add drama.

3. The head silhouette on the right is almost surreal juxtaposed against the white of the van.

4. The poster of the model adds a touch of whimsy and grounds the image with a modern context.

5. I really like the glow too.

French title aside, the glowing monochrome has a jagaresque quality about it.

Great stuff.

A fun-filled arrangement. Nicely done.

like this, my eye keeps getting drawn up the umbrella pole and to the supports for the umbrella, like the contrast of the supports against the dark umbrella, but it pulls me away from the subject of the photo

Brilliant capture! That little boy just cracked me up - even before I noticed the word attitude on the sign.
