The shot is to contrast the old and the new with the short 60s' buildings in the foreground and the unfinished high-rises in the background. The shot suffers from flare which can be seen in the right of the picture. The inclusion of a person gives a scale reference to the sizes of the buildings. The lady in modern clothes was selected to give a sense of embracing the new. If a person with traditional apparel is chosen, it would give a sense of obsession about the past.
