This is what passed through my head when I saw this: "

He was a sk8ter boi,
she said seeya later boi,
he wasn't good enoght for herrr."

The ambiguous title complements the equally ambiguous photograph. The light suggests that this was taken outdoors within a few hours of midday. The shadows would have been much better if it were overcast or earlier / later, but if this was some kind of a performance by a third-party, then you may have had no alternatives. The shadowy figures in the background are particularly intriguing, but the rather high-key figures in the foreground eclipse them. Both figures are obviously doing something quite intentionally, but since I'm not given any clear indication of what's going on I'm left with a prevailing sense of confusion rather than having the image elicit any strong emotion. Although this is a more literal representation of the bizarre character of most dreams, my waking mind would be more at ease with your image if the composition offered me some clear fixation point (e.g. the thing in the guy's hand) on which I might base my interpretation of this picture.

i like this. such a strange moment.

I really have no idea what is going on here ... I like that.

A very good photo indeed. Well exposed, strong focus on the main subjects and plenty of background interest to aid the overall confusion I'm still feeling!

Strange looking characters, fill in flash would have made this photo more special...

A great picture. Can't for the life of me begin to understand the meaning, though. Love the way that the subjects stand out.

Unique.... I like this. A bit to much light on the side of the girls face, but otherwise, well done. 9

Wow! Now this is just perfect. A fear of public performance I presume? Love the expressions on the faces and the background creates the perfect mood. 10
