Taken in Cardiff City Centre. Thought this shop window display was interesting. Found getting a good angle difficult and this is the best of the few I took. I liked the reflections, a hall of mirrors type effect. Processed with Photomatix and PS.

f7.1, ISO400, 47mm, 1/30sec

Whilst I rather like this I can see faults with it and would appreciate any advice on how to improve this.

Interesting and well seen. Your exposure info suggests very low light? I would have used the burning in tool to darken the surroundings a bit - they are rather too bright, but the general effect is pretty good.

Well noted.

Hi Frank, used Photomatrix to HDR the image as the original was very flat and it was difficult to get the whole range from the one image particularly with the dark interior of the shop against the light reflected on the glass outside. I agree that I was somewhat heavy handed with the levels in PS to brighten the surroundings to make the centre-piece stand out.

Paul - yes low light it was taken around 8:30pm.
