"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Hello Mariana, sorry to say so, but to me, what happened to be a lovely photo at first glance, turns out to be much to close to perfection and eventually looks like a montage ... how's that ? I know it's not, so, is that only my eyes ??? bye ...
