I like to participate in the Friday themes,and if nothing else, it is a good reason to look through the files and see what fits the bill.
Sometimes there is just not enough time to get out to an appropriate site for shots to fulfil the title.

A couple of weeks ago we were in Padstow and I spotted this toy shop that had one window displaying lots and lots of 'nesting' dolls.Just right for a few shots.

Now if you look at the reflections in the shop window, you can make out the buildings that surround the shop.Strange that the more you stare at the buildings the dolls seem to diminish.
Just cropped a little, added some contrast, applied unsharp mask, framed and resized.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Jean,
Interesting image full of detail and confusion...I like it a lot! Well done.

PS: Sorry...have run out of smileys for today.

Boa tarde Jean,

Imensa diversidade de cores e luzes. Belos reflexos da rua na vitrine da loja, criando uma imagem um tanto "psicodélica" e muito interessante. A moldura está em harmonia com a criativa e excelente composição.

Parabéns e um grande abraço,

  • Great

Hi Jean,
A fine window display of these hand made Russian Dolls through glass which produces funny shapes, yet very interesting.
Good light and perfect sharpness. Maybe the white car is destructing what would have been a real winner!
A wonderful composition created from this POV.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Jean.

You found a little gem of a shot here, I do like the subtle reflections on offer, as you say, stare and it all comes to you, i really do like it. Th eaddition of the colours to the dolls only adds to its appeal and intrigue. A simple frame sets this off perfectly. Pat on the back gal !. Have a dry weekend lol, TFS

Stv :0))

Hi Jean,
Nice creative presentation for the Friday theme. Now we can see what the dolls face and see. Good DOF and choice of the vertical frame. Well done & TFS
