"Does this hard looking dummy really needs a pair of specs?" Taken from outside a spectacle shop window in Matlock. Thanks for looking.

This is very creative. You made the most of a great opportunity, so very well seen and taken. The heads are arranged well in the space and I like the sharpness of the head in the middle and the blurriness of what I am guessing is a reflection of a head further back. The b/w treatment works very well especially as the glasses are nice and black.
A great image.
Kind Regards, Ann

A novel composition that grabs the attention. The Union Jacks make a good contrast with the severe looking heads. Black and white was certainly the right choice here.

This is funny and calls for questions : Is this an optician's shop-window or is it an exhibition in an art gallery ?
There is no doubt about the British origin though :-)
The dummy in the centre looks very serious : Advert for glasses for a serious golden boy ?
As for the lady on the right, she seems to be wondering whether the specs suit her ...
Thanks for sharing.

come stai? E' tanto tempo che non ti si vedeva.
Bella idea e bella realizzazione in B&W, pochi elementi che si ripetono creanto interesse alla vista.

Very creative and unique shot, and found in such a place too! Black and white is a great choice, and it suits the subject so well, and I love the reflections on the left, that tall necked dummy looks like its straining to hear the conversation between the others. Gives a lovely sense of life to the scene.
All the best

This is a fine and original composition, very interesting and slightly puzzling. What am I really looking at? I think b&w gives these heads the best treatment and captures the contrasts very well. The little Union Jack is a fine detail that once again makes me wonder what I am looking at.

I like the caption and the way it suits the picture more than anything else :)

A well observed shot. I like it - it's creative and original. Very effective in B n W too.
