First, let me thank you for commenting and rating this picture.
You raised a very important, "philosophical" question: is photoghaphy a representation or an interpretation of reality? Better, do its best function consist in stimulating immagination or representing the reality? My answer is: it depends. Depens on photographer's personality, on his mood in that moment, on situation, on the subject. So, perhaps you are right: my note is too much realistic and, giving a clear explanation, I killed poetry in this photo.
But what especially surprised me in that situation was his surprise for that "miracle". This is the reason because I wrote that rude but realistic note. But I'll keep your teaching for the future.

I hope my poor english will be able to explain my thought. Anyway, thanks so much aganin for your interesting criticism.
Regards Paolo
