I think the "dismembered" mannequins alongside the very normal couple with their dog makes for a shocking and bizarre contrast -- very arresting. This could be one of those pictures where viewers are challenged to come up with clever captions. Good job.
Jeff... I'm afraid I can not agree with you... The figures in the background are as important to this picture as the mannequins are... And what about the great dane? A picture like this is dream-like and evocative to my way of thinking. When I'm out with my camera, I look for them... seek them out.
I did make some changes to the portrait, some adjustments in color and added some space to the left side so that the plant could be displayed fully.
bburton ... Thanks for looking. I think you get it...
