I took this shot back in January, at much the same time as John took this one, but up until this version I've not been happy with the post-processing so haven't put it up. And in case you're wondering, it's a graphic overlay on a window of a 'massage parlour', hence the title.

It's nice.
However, I just like the woman.

Take care.

Not much to say about this one, but the pedant in me wonders if this was not the f4L?

Interesting that it was at 200mm.

Hey, thought you got the 70-200 2.8 in September? nice shot anyway...

I wonder if that is what you actually get though, doubtful ;)

Interesting, made me pause to work out why there was seemingly no crimping or shadow. I like that.

Now this is something different. I don't see this kind of shot in Chromasia for some time. Very well executed.

Arthur/Matt: you're quite right. I've amended the EXIF data.

Very unique photo. I really like it, but I would also have liked some more powerful colours on the girl, to make her stand out more

Nice and creative effect here. Well framed.

Is it me or the photo has disappeared? (at least I don't see anything)

I just can't help wonder what the passers by must have been thinking as you pointed your telephoto through the window of a 'massage parlour'... ;)

I look forward to every day
