Henri Cartier-Bresson Behind the Gare St. Lazare

Henri Cartier-Bresson took this extraordinary candid snapshot of a man in mid air jumping over a puddle. He came up with the phrase, "the decisive moment" while referring to this photo. It catches the attention of many people because of the excellent shot it caught, including the man, his actions, and what he is jumping over. I love his reflection captured in the puddle. It has so much to offer without being too focused on the main part of the picture since there is still a generous amount of background.
