A cracking shot Ken, superb capture and presentation, colour for me but only just.

A nicely worked set. Love the humour. Works better in b&w for me.

Its that candid camera man again Ken.GrinGrin You really do have a great eye for these scenes. Mono for me I think by just a whisker.

This is a fascinating comparison. It's a subject that I love, the way that shop mannequins often seem to be observing and passing comment on shoppers. I dither between colour and b&w for such images, here there are subtle changes in emphasis. In the right-hand image (which deserves its own upload, it's brilliant), colour puts the weight on the window display, b&w on the passer-by. The bottom left image has the reverse effect.
Fashion, like holidays and romance, tends to throw up a huge gulf between fantasy and reality. The mannequins on the right, looking down contemptuously at the lady, are wonderful.

Mannequins rarely seem completely detached from the world. Here is a cracking set illustrating their slightly sinister unreality - look at the ironic pose lower left, hand to chin, standing well clear as lady struggles with pushchair. Excellent.

A great set Ken and after the above comments you know how good these are, also the best thing is you do not have to pay them!

Color seems to bring these to life. I like the large right image of the three. It is a shot that should have it's own page. The expressions on the mannequins as they observe us lowly humans is almost eerie.

Yes, they have a bit of an unnerving sense to them
watching us real humans ..
I slightly prefer the mono, but both are super.
Well presented too.

They're brilliant Ken - but I think I would have uploaded them separately or as a set to give them their fully deserved glory! I'm with Bill, I love the mannequin in the bottom left who is looking at the lady with the pushchair.

A cracking set Ken, though the colour gets my vote, but just by a whisker.

So pleased to make it 30! I can't really decide on which version I prefer - they both work so well - interesting work

So much colour to be seen in the reflections. V2 for me Ken and the larger image of the 3 looks a bit special.
12 Oct 2011 8:46PM
Love the mono but also love the colour - can't decide between the 2! Smile

I prefer the colour version Ken because it shows up the shadows and reflections a lot more. Very well taken images Smile

Watcha Ken,

Both of these work so well, I like the interaction between the mannequins and the passers by
