One of six historic window displays inside the Schuster Center in Dayton, Ohio. This was taken from the same staircase that won my only ribbon so far. Hopefully this location will be lucky again. The Christmas light in the dog's mouth is not burned out but is a blinker. I couldn't get someone cute in front of it when the light was on.

I hate yellow retail lights! Cute perspective. I like the natural diagonal lines on the window and again on the floor.

I like the angle. Would have been good to see something of her face or a reflection. Still, well composed and framed.

Lovely shot with nice composition and exposure. I like the pictures which feature window shoppers, rather than just window displays. 9

Nice sharp image that meets the challenge. I think a lower perspective to the right of the child and at their level might have had more impact. 6

Very cute. Love that the spots on the coat sorta match the spots on the pup.

Very nice. Maybe a lower angle would have added more intimacy to the scene.
