With the graphical geometry in the photo I like also a funny effect: the lantern turn away form crossroads and its light falls on other direction, but crosswalks are still in light.
There is some emotional connection between woman on picture and a girl-observer. I like similarity of their skin tone, hair and pose. Maybe they met a century later.
Every person on this photo is deep inside their own thoughts. The photo of two boys on the top is emphasize and hint us about what kind of thoughts the girls in the middle have. Also I like a combination of triangles in composition of the photo. Paris and collar on the girl's neck inspired me to give a title to the photo "Matilda" (Like Natalie Portman's character in "Leon")
