    Rainbow, just wanted to say: That's not trick photography, just good photography.

    This is just crazy interesting. Did you wait for this or just happen upon it? It's not really an image with a profound message of any kind, at least to me, but it is a gorgeous example of the photographer creating a fantasy in the image using only the world before him.

    This is pretty cool Rainbow. It's funny my immediate reaction to the shot was composite, then I remembered I was in street and that it was yours :)
    So I have to ask, did you "see" this as you took it or did you only realize when you were working on the images back home (that happens to me quite often).

    Thank you! I consider it high praise from you and appreciate the follow through on looking at the MC.

    (For those unfamiliar, this MC is to capture a "trick photo" in a single frame without using post-processing tools for the effect.)

    Thanks for looking and commenting! I was chasing this as a "reflection shot" and did wait for the expression of the middle face. The rest has some luck to it as well. I believe the woman on the right is looking at my reflection straight into the lens.

    Thanks for realizing that I would not kneel so low as to post a composite... mwink.gif

    So the planned part of the photo was the middle face inside the store. I discovered that her face would quickly disappear completely if the focus were off due to the strong outside reflection. So I switched to manual focus and waited (and moved) to get her expression as seen. The other two are the serendipitous delight that I experienced on viewing at home (like for you, this occurs often in street as I am so locked in on my subject while life occurs around us... :ivar)
