Mannequins

(be sure you view full width to see the woman too)
A bizarre, if not downright creepy, result of perspective, reflected light and raindrops on the window. Would you buy clothing from this store? :D

Weird and unsettling (especially the man with the exploding head) but very well spotted and framed. Like the color array a lot. I'm not as big a fan of the speckled texture or grain as I am of some textures, maybe because it reminds me too much of what my camera does if I forget to set a maximum limit when I'm using auto ISO :D

Oh look, my ISO was 3200...rotfl

Thanks so much for checking it out, Minnie. I appreciate!

I like it all the way around Linda, if a cat clinging to the wall I'd think it was a colored Jim hill shot.......

IMO, a very cool image !!! I love the texture and color tones with this one. What really catches my attention, is the placement/alignment of the chandelier and the mannequin to the left. If it were me, I would probably have walked on by, so in regards to that, an excellent capture.

Wonderfully cool image in all respects. I am surprised no one has pointed out how appropriate it is at this particular time of year... :angel:

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
