Challenge: Window Shopping (Basic Editing)
Collection: Rated 5.5 - 5.9
Camera: Sony DSC-W150
Location: Delray Beach, FL
Date: Dec 21, 2008
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/250
Galleries: Still Life, Digital Art
Date Uploaded: Dec 22, 2008

This is the window of a local art gallery. The primary subject matter is rock stars, and much of the art is photography.

I like the collage look of this image, and I like the effect of the window reflection. I tried it in b&w, but like the color version better.

I haven't been doing well with the voters lately, and I think this will also receive a low score. It's not OOF and not blown, so my prediction is 5.2.

Camera Raw - Adjusted white balance and contrast.
CS3 - Crop, USM three times for impact and contrast, Neat Image, border, resize, slight sharpen, save for web.

One of my favorites in this challenge. Really much, much better than the score indicates.

I like the jumbled sense of things both inside and outside (in the reflections. My kind of shot. And very cool the backwards "joy joy joy" snuck in there!

The reflects seem to go between being intriguing and distracting, but that might just be me. I like it in either case.

Good idea. Needs something more though, something more interesting being reflected maybe...

Too much glare on the window. Maybe a person looking into the shop would have made the image look more like window shopping. 5

Interesting. Although there is too much going on all around John, the fact that there are barely any reflections on his face help focus the eye on him. Nice capture.

in some cases reflections can add to a photo, not so in this case i am afraid. the reflection of the car competes for attention /5
