    A recurring theme in my photography are shop window dummies. I want to start this thread with two pictures I have shot tonight. Please feel free to participate and post your favorite pictures of dummies!

    Very eerie, these well clad dummies! Interesting theme pictor, and I can already think of one member who should be ready to add to this thread.:thumbup:

    These don't compare - particularly that first shot from Pictor - great photo! But its what I've got.

    -Ray

    Two shop windows, one with an actual person intruding, the other with way too much reflection but provocative dummies. The third is headless/armless/legless sidewalk apron torso dummies with asses exposed - my favorite sub-genre! :cool:

    Hi -

    Interestingly enough, this has been a long-term interest of mine, but most of the images I have of shop windows haven't been digitized.

    But consider this:

    This is straight from the EP-1 with the kit lens and no modifications whatsoever from the original. Olympus EP-1, 14-42mm lens, 24mm, 1/15th/s@f4.4

    This, on the other hand: cropped slightly, run through DxO, cross-processed as Fuji Superia 200 in DxO with warm-tone film pack...

    What a difference some processing makes... :)

    And another one. Probably my most "Life like" window girl. I still have no answer to how that heart shaped highlight appeared on her glasses.
    It must have been another reflection from a nearby window. When I took the shot, I wanted the reflected building to be a important part of the overall look of the picture.
    I discovered it after loading it to my pc. Maybe a "sign" of her love for me, thanking me for immortalising her beauty.:wink:

    My ONE and only such pic. Taken from the car when we were driving down Putney High Street, London. I could resist those beautiful colors so I click, click with my L10/PL 14-150.
