I'll be really interested to see the comments on this. For me, I would love to see it in color. I'm not in love with color and B&W mixed. Here, the colored flowers almost suggest staging. And I'm thinking the extreme contrast overpowers the story. It's about the boots and the departed person, the oblivious man, but what I notice first is stark contrast. I almost missed the boots.

I'm curious about the comments, too.

First I wanted to ask the man if I could take a picture, but he didn't react when I came near with my cam. As I didn't want to disturb him, I just took this one, and left. Forget about the colors! the trash can is a flashy yellow! And yes, it's a bit "dramatic" with strong contrast.

I did only see the small bouquet when I looked at the photo on my computer, AND if I convert it to b&w, you just don't see it anymore.
