I love this. It looks like the silhouetted girl in front is wearing some sort of tiara, which makes her oggling the formal gowns even more interesting.

Can't not help but be intrigued by this.

Again -- another one with a story. Stories are important in a good photograph, imo. Perhaps this one hits me on a female level. It really draws me in. But then again, I do like dress up. :)

The colors delight even before closer examination begins. Of course it's the young woman looking into the window that makes the image. The depth and latitude of her musings and dreams are beyond my shallow understanding. The reflections in the window are like indecipherable thought balloons. And the reflection of the "Cross" traffic light symbol on the far right is charming. Very enjoyable.

A bit of dreaming of her next dance I hope. Lovely capture of the lighting.

Growing up. Good impact.

Minor thing: The cut-off dress on the right bothered me only as it would have been even better without it.

I can remember as a girl doing what was called "window shopping" and this image beings those memories back. Glamour in those days was for the wealthy and Hollywood and all I could do was dream. Nicely seen.

the title shows that you understand what's interesting about this image... no faces, just glimmers and bauds.

And to wear any of them, you need a good set of knockers. That's what she's thinking.

Interesting to me mostly because of the symbolism of the headless ideals in the glamour gowns versus the captivated young lady observer who seems to be dressed modestly and conservatively. I wonder does the absence of heads make it easier for the observer to mentally project themselves into the gowns? Sort of a virtual trying-on? Probably it does.

It's also an interesting photograph because it's so harsh; the colours (of the gowns) are so uncompromising, and the lighting of the window so artlessly direct. A sort of beauty through bluntness, much like I'd imagine are the customers who'd buy such gowns, and the places they'd wear them. Thank you.

Great use of colour, most weren't so bold. The muted, North Sea green hues has me seeing these as dresses for mermaids - she stands on a tail in my mind, the dresses will keep her secret safe.

Great moment, very well preserved. Bumping to a 9.
