Entirely too busy. And I think it's kinda cool anyway. (And for you gentlemen, there's a bra in there somewhere....)

If you don't like it, that's fine - I'm rather quirky in my likes - but do let me know why. I'm always open to suggestions, too!

Hmm it's like "I Spy" for adults lol. There is so much to see here! First I saw the woman in the center. Then I looked behind her and saw the hanging coat(?). Then suddenly I see the hands on the hips and then out pops that bra on the left lol. Very trippy.

busy or busty?

wheres the bra? wheres the bra? oh, there it is *snigger snigger*

Yup, certainly busy but thats what draws me into the image - sooo much to look at. Doubt its a dpc friendly image but thats the good thing about side challenges, they don't have to be ;)

Its sort of voyeuristic :)

I totally messed up, wondering why some guy in a kilt is feeling up a pillar. Groupings of people coming and going very eloquent: you don't know which is the cause or which the effect: showcased goods or shoppers. What I like about photog: you can find things.

I don't think it's too busy, I mean that's part of the pic. It's a tale of two stories, what's going on out there and what's going on inside behind the glass. It's nice to see what perspective the mannequins have as we always see it the other way from the outside looking in. Well done!

The visual puzzle is not immediately attention grabbing - but when you do start to look for that bra, for instance, then you start seeing all sorts of things. I am reminded of those children's picture books in which there is, say, a little mouse on every page and it becomes a game to find it and in doing so one actually reads the book. Nice premium, Deb.

Hips? I just see a hand touching ______________. (Fill in the blank!) OK. I just found the bra. 8) I love this. I can make up my own story to go with it.

City streets are always busy :)

It's a nice image, many reflactions and a lot of things happening.

Well. Busy suits it. I find myself studying it and wondering how exactly you got this effect. It's so interesting the way the hands on the hip lady is so big relative to everyone else. Ever since our blur challenge, I have come to love the energy of blur photography. It also appeals to my love for soft photography.

I don't think it would be too busy at all if maybe the large person on the left were cropped out. Then, maybe your eye would be drawn instantly to the hands on the hip lady -- but just as it is is also very interesting. I like it alot.

Well it's a good kind of busy. It looks like you stacked about 10 transparencies on top of each other. There's so much depth to it that is appealing but what I find most interesting is how everyone is kind of like the mannequins in the window. Although the humans move they serve as mannequins themselves, but not showcasing outfits rather daily routine.

Yes, this is busy and quirky, but that's fine. I was initially drawn to the center and it took a couple seconds to find the hands on hips. I like photos that compel me to look around discovering things.

At first I could not connect the title to the picture, as my attention was immediately fixated on the subject near center with the handbag and boots. But eventually I was able to pull back and see the manequine with hand on waist. Intriguing shot, much interest here.

There is certainly a lot to look at in this photo. It is a bit soft for my taste, and elements tend to flow together. I think this maybe be what you like about it, so I would never assume to try to tell you how to "fix" it.

I really like the refection. Plays a great role in this fabulous shot. People running everywhere to get what they need .. me, it would be shoes. ;) Great b/w..I really like all the different people and their directions.

I agree... it is sort of a busy photo but it does look neat. I like the fact that the lady in the reflection seems to be watching all with disdane (or something lke it)... not bad
