Yep... I think you are 'sprung' Lonnit? .... I can recognise the 'if yer gunna breakem... smash em!' sigbature of this one. NO RofT?
The composition, the over-sharpening and that ladder have an impact! ... I feel the need to hold a net in case they slip!
Great post ~ Regards Melbob

Julie: Your comment opened my eyes. I should not have posted my former comment, obviously; my ignorance—due to the complete lack of «Reader’s Digest» experience—should have precluded me from doing so... I do apologize for my naiveté to the semi-anonymous photographer too (for not having seen neither irony nor any other sort of humour in the over-sharpening)! — db.

Looks like Lonnit colors. Plus, I see the camera is a 5D. -- Victor

I love the angle and I love the humour here. I think the over-sharpening is purposeful.

I did not know that «Reader’s Digest» illustrations were Art... ;-) This image, anyway, looks just a tad over-sharpened to me. — db.
