Reflections of the city scape and Dali banner in a store window. Two days before the challenge was announced I took a different photo that I thought more surreal because the mannequins had no heads but they changed the display when I went back. Oy!

were there no visible vitrine and lines, i would mark quite high as it fits very well to my concept of surrealism (though the slanted verticals are also a bit too apparent), 6

This picture very much attracts my eye when looking at the thumbnails of all the entries. Excellent positioning of model behind reflective glass. The Dali banner hanging from the lamp post is highly surrendepitous. Excellent angle and lighting. Not much I can say to be helpful. Just wanted to let you know I love the shot.

Great use of realtime photography to capture the essence of surrealism, including the great iconic granddaddy of this misunderstood philosophical-artistic movement. The woman's attitude captures the aloof unreality of true surrealism. I also love the reflective glass panes in this photo. Thanks for bringing surrealism to us without photoshop bastardization. One of my favorites to ribbon. 10
