When I came to Aix, South of France, for my grandson’s birth, my attention was catched by the Benneton shop, and immediately I saw that this could make a funny subject. If you enjoy this kind of humor, certainly you will appreciate this one that I posted some months ago, if you have not already seen it:
Techdata: Nikon D70 with Nikkor 3.5-4.5/18-70 Pro ED at F27mm, f/6.3 and 1/40s metered manual setting, fluorescent white balance, ISO 400. In spite of these several manual adjustments the color balance was not at all satisfactory, therefore I added three Adjustment Layers in Photoshop CS3 Extended: Levels, Hue/Saturation and Color Balance (this one on the reds). The Clone Stamp and Corrector Tools were used to wipe the most unwilling reflexions, and this finished with a slight Outline Sharpening Filter. The thumbnail received a very important postwork to hide this (politically) very uncorrect nudity!
I will now return to my series of Senegal cars for two or three more images. So keep in touch with my gallery if you have been interested by these photos. Afterwards I will return to 2D and 3D drawings. Comments welcome!

Those mannequins seem to have lost their heads ... that's one way of being liquidated I suppose. I took another look ... where's the Marie Antoinette mannequin? :-) Nicely presented Edouard.

Génial. J'adore cet humour. Puis-je me permettre une critique et un point de vue ? J'aurai recadré un peu l'image sur les côtés latéraux et rétabli l'horizontale. J'aurai désaturé un peu l'image pour lui donner un côté plus "métallique". Mais, c'est une question de point de vue. En tous cas, bonne idée.

What a wry sense of humor. Clever. No clothes left to liquidate, so they began parting out the mannequins for sale. Soon the panels on the store's walls?

Assez étrange comme vitrine !! On a un mannequin à notre image maintenant ?? J'aimerais bien qu'il en soit de même pour les femmes, on se sentirait moins complexer et nos jeunes filles seraient moins anorexiques ... Belle photo en tout cas !
