The positioning of the characters is perfect.

It stands out from every other thumbnail on the page.
The full sized image doesn't disappoint.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Yes. There is something about this shot that grabs the viewer. It reminds me of Anthony Gormley's figures.
Love it. I think a mono conversion might work too.

Really clever eye for the subject matter here. Well, you get it right over and over actually. Love this story capture.

I did consider this in mono - and may yet do a version of black and white. But then I would want to see the four figures in bowler hats to give the image a feel of Magritte. Thanks for all the positive comments.

The contre-jour aspect of the photo makes the figures anonymous and thus all the more intriguing. Love this!
