I'm seldom one for tilting an image on purpose but it seems to work OK for this one, which is a bit of a funky shot anyway. The contrast between the two rows of human figures - the tired shoppers and the pale bald mannequins doing calisthenics in the background is what makes this shot work. Your Mall Series is very cool Matt.

Minnie, It is a pleasure sending stuff your way; you notice. It makes the effort very worthwhile. Although some have told me to shoot for yourself and don't bother what others think, I am sensitive to how my betters react, else I wouldn't show my work. You and the many others who comment regularly encourage me a great deal. Many thanks.

I went to a local photo group meeting last night for the first time and was disappointed. After half an hour of showing a few images from members with the only comment being "That's nice" or "I really like that", I realized what a treasure pM is. Don't think I'll go back.

This is a fun image with so many stories to tell. I love the quirkiness of it and wonder if there's a backstory of its own? S-

Backstory is that I wait and wander while the bride shops. The fellow in the middle moved and so is blurred. I had another photo but didn't like it as much as this which has more interest for me. Thanks. Matt
