Stunning! You've made such a profound statement with this brilliant image to illustrate the lines...To keep up a 'plastic' facade of emotionless calm so your countenance remains ever so perfectly poised, never touched by the ugly lines created by 'crying' or any 'emotion'! Great work:)

Well done Sharon, they all seem living and alive and amazed. Incredible humanity of these "creatures" ! :-)
21 Jul 2009 6:32am
They are curious and crave to go out and live their lives freely. Free them, Sharon, they deserve it ! :)
Love the tones and the framing, a lil'creepy (the window itself) but the girls are pretty, indeed so it's tale more than a horror movie ~

Very good image, I like the way you did it and the composition with all this "people" looking at us from a quarter of the window. Good process also.
21 Jul 2009 7:12am
love the softnessin this shot...and at the same time the colors are so powerful...facinating and a bit surreal :)
21 Jul 2009 7:30am
Well seen! Really great. Great to see your work:).
21 Jul 2009 8:53am
It is as though they are prisoners looking out the window of that dilapidated building. Scary!
21 Jul 2009 9:18am
Fantastic!!! I adore the finish on the window, spectacular...I also enjoyed the b&w version where the accent was on the 'faces' is was spooky lol
21 Jul 2009 10:02am
Wow....this is fantastic. What words used to describe such an image. The colors on this are amazing. Softening this image made it just come alive.
21 Jul 2009 10:34am
Oh i like this soften capture - a little bit horror made :D. Awesome!
21 Jul 2009 10:57am
A super combination Sharon! Both picture and title fit like a glove.....Bravo! ;-)
21 Jul 2009 11:19am
Wow!!! Super mood, colours, framing...all is masterly!!!
21 Jul 2009 11:31am
Strange atmosphere ! Superb !
21 Jul 2009 11:39am

21 Jul 2009 12:59pm
Excellent colors and tones. not to mention pretty girls :)
21 Jul 2009 1:15pm
I like colors, textures and glow effect... a good framing and strange image.
21 Jul 2009 1:25pm
I think this colour version looks even more surreal than the B&W one Sharon....lovely work!
21 Jul 2009 1:32pm
ohhhh< I love this with your post processing and framing!!!! Awsome
21 Jul 2009 1:36pm
Great find & well shot .... love this one Sharron
21 Jul 2009 1:50pm
I like the overall effect you have brought out with the processing and the soft feel adds to the artistic appeal in this shot.
21 Jul 2009 2:15pm
I can see I have missed some incredible work of yours bc! This is an excellent image...love it!
21 Jul 2009 2:43pm
I'm sure the minute you saw the scene your heart went crazy, because this is a shot every photographer would like to take. Congrats.
21 Jul 2009 3:03pm
@Jaol: Thanks Jaol. You know...I pass by this house every day and these heads have been in the window for over a year now, but yet I still look over to see them there in all their eerie goodness :)
First time i was scared and after a wile amazed, it's precisely made image.
georgious shot !!!!
five stars ,i like !!
21 Jul 2009 3:44pm

21 Jul 2009 4:08pm
Incredible textures and colors in this. Great find.
21 Jul 2009 4:17pm
great soft processing and framing on this photo! =D
21 Jul 2009 4:43pm
most excellent find. kinda creepy a bit. :)
21 Jul 2009 5:06pm
Those heads in the window are what it calls to me plus the attention of this excellent image. I like the diffuse touch of the color, that full of magic the scene
21 Jul 2009 5:42pm
A superb capture ! Very beautiful !
21 Jul 2009 5:49pm
Well spotted, captured, processed and presented. I like it :-)
21 Jul 2009 6:24pm
Or, as the Four Seasons once sang, "Big girls don't cry..."
21 Jul 2009 6:29pm
This is so amazingly creepy!
(I can hear you giggling in the backgrond :>)
21 Jul 2009 6:59pm
@Massimo: Grazie Massimo e ciao!
Yup...you know it!
Windows are always a wonderful subject but this takes them into new territory in exploring this almost macabre collection of heads. Your processing here turns up the unease factor nicely !
21 Jul 2009 7:08pm
Great color, Sharon! I truly love your reds. They have a lot of brown in them throughout your portfolio. Beautiful choice.
21 Jul 2009 7:57pm
j'aime bien le rendu des couleurs de cette image, bien vu.
21 Jul 2009 9:14pm
Well done. I love the weathered window frame.
21 Jul 2009 10:22pm
great work !
21 Jul 2009 11:56pm
Lovely capture, beautiful colors and a stunning composition. Like the ladies looking through the window, something mysterious about that. Interesting and creative image.
22 Jul 2009 2:15am
Spooky and very well done... great work
22 Jul 2009 2:46am
Strange seeing the heads there. I particularly like the window. It's the biggest thing I miss about my break from capturing abandoned structures. Really nice, Sharon.
22 Jul 2009 4:02am
J'aime beaucoup... et pense à la chanson de Jacques Brel "Les fenêtres"
22 Jul 2009 4:39am
Ohhh, I just love this. That old, weathered window frame is wonderful and then to see those manequin (sp) heads--haha--fantastic! Love the Chris Isaak quote, too. Perfect!
22 Jul 2009 4:59am
This is a beauty. I love all the natural tones combined with the peeling paint and the so out-of-time heads. It's pretty special.
22 Jul 2009 6:31am
Wow, what a great scene. Looks like there's a party going on inside for those heads!
22 Jul 2009 8:15am
such a brilliant find. so removed and abstract, great shot
22 Jul 2009 9:12am
I'd hate to see what happened to the pretty boys. Terrific find. Excellently framed, processed. Love it.
22 Jul 2009 10:09am
Very good picture and great aesthetic appeal.
22 Jul 2009 10:49am
what a terrific shot, great find
22 Jul 2009 10:54am
Fantastic shot, feels quite haunting and I think the processing add to this. Also a very good composition and the colors are nice and rich.
What a Wonderful shot... Nicely done!
22 Jul 2009 12:35pm
Well spotted. And nice to have a colour shot once in a while.
22 Jul 2009 1:36pm
Excellent. That is a wonderful shot. Glad you spotted this.
22 Jul 2009 2:48pm
Great find! Love everything about this - the textures..the colors..the details.
22 Jul 2009 3:39pm
This is a mind blowing image. What a perfect composition and feel. Your processing is so great.
22 Jul 2009 4:24pm
this picture remind to me a Kertezst pic the colours are first class !
22 Jul 2009 4:27pm
Lovely shot. love the contrasts here, the soft ethereal glow and the almost spooky nature of the doll heads. I like it :)
22 Jul 2009 5:24pm
The models prisoners of their store dream about evasion...
22 Jul 2009 7:02pm
If only Chucky had come here and picked his bride he may be less violent now... :-)

how about these lyrics:
That girl's a barbie doll.
She's really good lookin'
But she's got no heart at all.
22 Jul 2009 8:11pm
22 Jul 2009 8:12pm
I like the latest one better. Because all the things around them, such as window frames, curtains, walls, are so much effective to make this photo's mood.
22 Jul 2009 10:57pm
This could make a very good poster for a horror movie! It would have great success in Japan where summer is THE time to watch horror movies, especially in August!
23 Jul 2009 1:37am
Wonderful image and especially with the aged wood trim on the window! A great capture and tones on this image! Great work!
23 Jul 2009 4:17am
Lovely colors ... so cool ... thanks
23 Jul 2009 6:29am
like this one :-)
23 Jul 2009 12:50pm
Ha, just waiting for a chance to go out and live it up a little. So well spotted and great colour! 5* from me.
23 Jul 2009 3:18pm
A masterpiece!!!! Gives me a Eggleston feeling!
23 Jul 2009 4:21pm
Lovely colour, surreal image
23 Jul 2009 5:10pm
A spooky and whimsical shot- especially the one of the left.
23 Jul 2009 8:43pm
strange... fascinating !
23 Jul 2009 9:37pm
Definitely a interesting shot, its nice to see some color again but you still managed to add some quirk to it. Nice work! Love the glow.
24 Jul 2009 3:10am
You are an excellent predator of the decisive place, scene, and moment. There is so much drama here.
24 Jul 2009 5:21am
I really like this one.The colors are rich and it feels creepy.
24 Jul 2009 1:03pm
wow, mysterious and a bit creepy and also funny, love it!
24 Jul 2009 9:16pm
Great work. Wonderful idea.

14 Aug 2009 11:25pm

24 Aug 2009 5:36pm
that's fabulous! they do look alive and startled. i like that you've given the whole window.
29 Aug 2009 2:49pm
Very cool. Nice photo with good colors and the heads is a nice touch.
