No, this was not staged. Actually I just had one shot and the guy took off afterwards.

Thanks for all the comments. Here's a slightly changed pp, basically to avoid those blown ups...

Definitely a multi-layered photograph with the primary subject...and then all the great activity happening in the reflections. Well done!

I always hesitate to vote sculptures high. On the other hand this has so much more going for it, from the complementary pose of the other sitter to the phenomenal reflections behind them. Still, so much of the heart of this picture comes from that statue. But so what? It's wonderful when art is collaborative. 10

Nice spot and I like the background too, lots of extra detail there but not interfering with foreground.

This wouldn't be nearly as good without all the cool reflections.

Nice capture - Great spot but let down on the exposure front as the highlights are far too blown out.

Cute. She looks like she's not quite sure about that statue. Nice work.

the highlights are quite blown out on what would otherwise be a good quirky image

this is so good i'm finding it hard to imagine it wasn't posed but i'm going to vote as if it isn't.

What I like most is all of the action in the reflection of the glass behind them. The boy's shirt and arms are a touch blown out. But I still like the story it tells.
