Something different-at least for me.

I was just a walking down the street and saw these legs. I like both versions. Thoughts?

Very off beat I must say - I like the color version - interesting photos for sure. I think a wider DOF to show all the legs in focus would have been good as well. Nice outside the box shot.

Very interesting Peter. Whats the scene part of? It looks like a shop window display or something.

Im not very experienced with Dof but maybe if you had focused more on the 1st set of legs ( knees included), dunno just a thought

original version

Thanks guys. Here's the original. The Software I have has a nice focus blur plugin I just added and tried a selective blur. I can put the focus point anywhere.



It was a store window display.

Fun image Peter. I think I'd go with Dave on prefering the colour one and with Tom for his suggestion of just having the first set more in focus than the others plus adjustment to take away any sheen above knee.

Dave, You got it. The snow just keeps coming, we got 40 Cms Sat and Sun and there's another big one coming on Wednesday. I am in desperate need of some green grass. Otherwise I might need to smoke some just to relax Lol.

Thanks Paul, tlfaust, thomasjmpark and weatherwise2 for having a look.

I like black and white version, Peter. More funky and unique. The colour is so twisted that it really grabs my attention. Love that feeling. It gives me the feeling of joker in batman movie.

I like the B&W version because of that slight pause it takes to decide if you're looking at real legs or fake ones.

Hi Peter, I like the original shot best of all. I think the only thing I'd change would be to get rid of the specular reflections, I even like the highlighted 'shine' on the knees. The whole photo has a surreal feel to it I very much like

Me too, Peter. But I'd like to see in B&W, as well.
