Cartier-Bresson and me?

My parisian photo Dèfense, published on Amateur Photographer (4th place, round 7 Away from home)

Judges say: "Simona’s image reminded the judges of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photograph ‘India, Kashmir, Srinagar, 1948’. An interesting subject photographed in an imaginative way".
