Default Reflections behind the glass....

An old town up one of the rivers is where I found this guy. He was standing behind the glass, in the front window, of a store that posted no hours, and appears to have been dormant quite a spell. When queried through the glass with both voice and gestures, he remained mute, deep in the thought of whatever it was he was reflecting upon....







PS: The window was filthy, spotted with dust and rain, and streaks. I did my best considering, and took some liberty in PP. Would love to hear your thoughts regarding either, or, as I haven't waded very far into this area of photography as yet. Thank you.

In photography I do no t think there is anything so weird unless its really freaky... I love it you can see the how the sun has faded the jacket.... but the area I don't care for is how the face on the other side has a look as if the sun has melted it some and its dropping? what was on his neck is what I ask my self... the second has a comic book effect to it Great shots even with the dirty glass...

Yes...good catch, I missed that when I was cloning out the BG clutter.

Nice picks. Would have liked either to see a little bit of the second mannequin or to see nothing of it.

I know...it was another mannequin behind him that I tried to remove in PP. Perhaps I can mask it out, as I tried to clone it out but really chopped up his facial lines.
