While visiting my niece in Tokyo, I found this display in one of the shops. This is unedited except for slight crop.

    Well I don't think it needs any editing. A fantastic find and nicely photographed. I see a POTD, or at least a winner for this. Lots of levels of interest. Probably EOD or misc. for the entry.

Thank you all for such kind comments. Means a lot to me.

Terry, thanks for your response. Enjoyed your gallery. You have a way of filling the frame and showcasing your subjects.

Isn't it great when you get a shot that needs little or no editing? Great capture. Looks like something you would see in Tokyo.

Very unique and artistic....pop art! I really like it Dale! :~) If you wanted to do a fun colorful variation of this you could select inside each circle and mess with the hue slider.

Thanks everyone, and Debbie, you are so right. I wish I could take more shots that worked right out of the box! But I guess that what we are all striving for,right?

One down, now to try to get another. :o)

Really Dale!? I am jealous of how you can take a picture of something so "normal" and make such an awesome image! This is great!!! How does it look in BW?

OK, this is really nit-picky, but as I went past your image again, in the center bottom circle on the bottom, there is a tiny speck.... maybe clone it out?

Thanks so much Deb. I had a look at the image and found eleven more anomalies that I got rid of besides the spot. Also did a bk and wht.

By the way, would still like the image you took of me in DC. Loved that shot.

I like the color one better than the Black and white one. I was just wondering how many of these you bought?

Would you believe except for the $$$$ for the bullet train and the air fare, I only spent about $400 on the entire trip? Didn't buy any glasses.
