      It must be a good idea to look away. I love this juxtaposition.

      Nice composition and it looks more like wondering eyes than fear, just my observation.

      An absolutely pre-Raphaelitan character. I am amazed by the way you mananged to seamlees mix two different worlds
      ( drawing / living human) into a meaningful third one.
      The precision of your built in eye for perfect compositions lets me perplex..... there is a visual path, a line that ties the whole picture together, it starts on the right hand border of the picture, wher the hair meets the edge, goes to the left, inches along the ase of the pie-crown, goes to the chin of the kid, dissapears for a moment ,
      behaind his neck reappears on the collar of the t-shirt, circles de front of the neck, ties with the pullover and starts going down by the edge of his figure, and then for the last 20 cms jumps to the shoulder strap of the girl- turns up in a bucle, and ties with the profile of the girl face, showing us, by the way her expresion .... increible.

      There is nothing to fear but fear itself....or a truckload of 6 foot 4 Maoris on Ice!!

      The photographer as agent again. You don't record the scene, you create it. The question is, what might he be scared of? The lion's complacent dominance is chilling., but there are four of you in the moment (five if you count the owl). There you are again. And here: both the boy and the girl in the other half of the diptych have their backs to the art, so who here is "facing art"?

      This pair is masterly.

      Yes, who is 'facing' art? I was aware of that question, Ned... and I am very happy that you ask it in public. You gave the answer yourself in the comment on the other half of the diptych: the viewer on Flickr is the third party that is facing the art...

      There is no easy way out. Like I said before, art should be a personal game. There is no uniform subcription of what to perceive...

      Thanks for your enthusiam, Ned.

      excellent series!

      I must agree with ned...
      It's in a man´s nature to be scared, when you were aware of your surrouding you acted with natural insticts...
      and as you say art is one with each and every mind, a sublime message to the soul that get's it...
      hope you don't in legal troubles, hehe...
      keep them coming...

      when i saw the picture i thought its a candid shot infront of a art, was too busy observing the art and the caption, but as i started to read the comments, there is so much then just a caption and the person.

      @ Oh Yes, there are certain pictures my instincts tell me go ahead to do it based on your concept as i'm aware not to be become superficial or unrealistic. Enjoying too much with that kind of presentation.

      Thanks for the comments.

      Great shot! I think pre-raphaelites can't do no more damages.
      Post-raphaelites yes!
      I'm seeing a baffled man looking around to realize what's meaning this work.
      But you have built a perfect composition.
