paul, not sure if anyone has noticed this, but in thumbnail form it almost looks like half a woman's face on the right side of the image. made me love this even more.

Congratulations on the ribbon Paul. Absolutely love the location. All the items on the shelving in the background give it a great old time feel. Not many places left like this anymore. Processing is perfect.

I almost did the same type of shot! Colonial Williamsburg has a great shop like this. But when I went to CW, I really wasn't in the mood to shoot for the challenge. I couldn't remember where the shop was, and didn't want to bother looking for it, so I took a few shots in a couple of places, thought maybe I had something I could use, and decided to go photograph birds instead. :)

I'm so glad I didn't look for the shop -- because your shot is truly excellent, and there's no way I could come anywhere near this. Beautifully done -- congrats on the yellow!

Congratulations Paul! This Old Apothecary was a very clever choice for the set of your photo, it works just beautifully. There is also something reassuring yet nostalgic in how the ghost looks, fantastic mood. Keep up the good work.

Congrats on the Yellow Paul, the more I look at this image the more I like it - there's a great mystery about it that I didn't see first viewing - unfortunately I didn't get time for a second pass or this would have been bumped to one of my top scores without a doubt.

I love the setup here, a local museum has a similar general-store setup that I wanted to make use of, hence my original comment. Huge congrats on the yellow, look at the company you're in!

i can't imagine how much time it would take to find this shop... and if you built it then well...holy.

Very good setting, with a great figure to pull this off.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2012 11:20:17 AM
Awesome. Top shot for me. Tones are perfect and everything in the scene seems old and slightly creepy. An effect of the tones you used I'm sure. This image in it's natural lighting would just be plain boring.


This shot is one of my top 3 shots.

EPIC WIN. This is perfect, meets the challenge and illustrates a very realistic manifestation of what I would vision a "ghost photo" to be. Awesome image, awesome location and subject too, so far in my voting this is blue ribbon all the way.

Great image for this challenge, but upper left/lower right corners get a bit too dark IMO, and lower left corner object is too ghosted. Would've been great if the counter-top items were as crisp as the botles/shelves, and if the corners weren't as dark that far in. (some is good, but i find this to be too much. upper right corner got it correct)
6/10 as is

This is cool and certainly ghostly. I like the sepia tones like an old photograph. :)
