It's a christmas-tree-type shiny red bauble in a show window. It was roughly the size of my head. Got some funny looks from passers-by as I pressed my lens against the shop window and took the shot. :-P

Well...I look more like my portfolio pic. If I really looked like this, it would take me twenty mins to get to my front door (and I live in a very small house)! Grin

Eric,

Nice shot, something very different.

It's an image that reminds me of looking at the 'normal' world from a photographers viewpoint.

And sooo RED, Happy New Year

Clever idea Eric. I would probably have cloned out the lights at the top and the legs on the bottom left but they are just miner things. That is one red bauble isnt it? Good one. I like it.
Cheers

Thanks, Brian. Can't say about the warb. I think you just have to wait and hope. Then, one day, all your effort is rewarded....

Many thanks, Roy. I never had that problem...up to now. Might be because I'm not young enough to be a policeman? Smile

You have scored well with this one Eric...the red reflections of a man weilding his camera aright is a great feature in the way you have framed it. Great work.
