The 2 elderly people seem to be seduced by the big advert: how to stay young all your life!

Hello Claude,
A funny composition with these two people seemingly standing in awe of Dame Helen Mirren and her anti-ageing cream. Well spotted and very well realised.

Ha! Ha! Claude, were you attracted by the advert, too, or just the couple watching the ad!
Maybe it is the life style of Helen Mirren that attracts, too!
I love how much you manage to see when walking the streets of Manchester and turn into such well presented photographs.

Have a great w/e,
Bev :-)

salut Claude
C'est bien vu! une superbe composition, bonne utilisation de l'affiche.
Bon W-E

Bonjour Claude
Another great example of your great observation abilities.
The scene is an invitation to fantasize about thoughts of the elderly couple watching to perfect skin of the golden age model.
Excellent presentation
Have a good weekend. Groet Rob

Bonjour Claude,

Ils ne pouvaient pas prendre plus belle actrice pour cette publicité et un peu de photoshop arrange bien les choses.

Salut Claude

How to stay young all your life? That's easy, but the catch is (& it's a big one) you have to die in your 20's. :-( Punchy light contrasts here, good sharpness, and the advert does seem to have a captive audience of 2 elderly folks.

Hi Claude
That's quite a visual splash and great reminders of a passed age! Interesting slice of daily life as people go about the day, on the one hand, you get to admire the beautiful display and on the other hand their intense concentration really lends superb sense of focus adding a whole new dimension to the composition. I love the pleasant clarity, low light ambience and the contrasting colour. Simple delight, good observation and timely shot, Congrats.
Warm regards

Hello Claude
Now Dame Helen Mirren is certainly the perfect ambassador for an anti aging cream, she is so beautiful. But unfortunately even an expensive cream does not halt the aging .... :-)
have a great time

Bonjour Clodo,

Two or three things I must comment about: having the couple in the photo as viewers is essential; they are not elderly. And the screen is a golden rectangle in the proportions 1.0 to 1.618; it has been divided into a square, leaving the rest, "Age Perfect," as a golden rectangle. And, indeed, Helen Mirren, appears ageless and beautiful.

Warm regards,
