I really, really do not expect this to do well, but as soon as I saw Spiderman in the shop window, I knew I had to.

Saturation filters
Brightness/Contrast
Noise Reduction
Clarify
Sharpness
Resize
Crop


Taken in Blackpool, England in a shop selling games, dvds, comics, tv trivia stuff!

Congats on getting the Yospiff award. Loved the disco ball!

The shoehorn graphic represents his signature wacky humor in using shoehorns in his submissions. It is not any statement that your photo was a shoehorn, but rather a compliment on your humerous take on the challenge.

Thanks Spiff, but in my opinion this is not a shoehorn... it is a picture shot through a shop window.... could you expand on why you think it is a shoehorn?

It matches the challenge description perfectly:
"Challenge Description:
Take a photograph looking through, or of, a store window"

I'll be interested in seeing who did this image. The title is fantastic and the image has a comic flavour. Super!

The lighting gives this an almost comic-book like feel. Definitely enhances this subject.
