I like the backwards arrow as much as the crumbling man on the wall. Terrific image. I love that you didn't crop it tighter. Great work.

Cinematic. Banksy meets reservoir dogs on sales office lunch break. Great capture.

I like this gang, always going the wrong way

Excellent street! aligning the legs of the walker and wall art was brilliant! Love the stark B&W too.

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. Simply a great catch - them against the decaying figure on the wall.
2. Brilliantly exposed, with perfect toning.
3. The dynamism of your subjects - not just their walking but how they are socially active as a trio.
4. The contra directional arrow.
5. The perfectly judged vignette.
6. The shadows - theirs and the one on the wall to the extreme right.

Brilliant stuff.

Terrific street whimsy made extra terrific by the contrary arrow. Street sweet considerations aside, it's also a very fine photograph. 9 and thank you.

I bet you had to wait a while to get just the right people to pass by (or it was staged. I would have cropped a little from the left side, but that is just me. Great image nonetheless. Bumping up
