While I prefer this to yesterday's shot – I think it’s a more complex image, and the various ‘layers’ of detail are more thoroughly intertwined – I suspect that some of you may find it a bit too ‘illustrative’, or graphic-art-like, to be instantly appealing ;-)
This shot was taken in the same window as yesterday's entry, and I would guess that the mannequins were probably manufactured by the same company – they both have the same dreamy, far-away expression, and both have the same quizzical tilt of the head. And I thought that it was interesting that a few of you found yesterday’s shot creepy – I didn’t really see it that way – but I do think that this one is decidedly creepy, mostly (I think) because the mannequin's face seems a little more diffuse and ghost-like in this one.
And finally, I spent a bit of time today working on one of the other window-reflection images that I took the other day, and think it’s better than both of these, but it will have to wait till next week, unless tomorrow’s Photo Friday theme is windows, reflections, or some other related topic. I would post it at the weekend, but I do have slightly less traffic on Saturday and Sunday so will probably put it up on Monday.
