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. #1484492

Just looks cool even without edits....great find. #10308997

Very cool, Dale! Nothing to do to improve this one. #10309251

I agree! Great find! Doesn't need anything :) #10309477

Dale Hardin 9/5/2012 7:43:44 AM

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. #10309631

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. #10310425

Elaine Hessler 9/5/2012 5:13:05 PM

Very fun shot! #10310436

Aimee C. Eisaman 9/5/2012 5:15:42 PM

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. #10310445

Teresa H. Hunt 9/5/2012 5:51:36 PM

Very cool shot Dale!! :) #10310482

Kristin Duff 9/5/2012 6:33:42 PM Japanese...eyecatching but very simple in it's design. Good job Dale! #10310526

Dale Hardin 9/5/2012 9:29:21 PM

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) #10310651

Peter W. Marks 9/6/2012 7:58:22 AM

Thank you Peter. Thank you. #10311253

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? #10312966

Debbra Bailey level-deluxe 9/7/2012 9:47:30 AM

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? #10312971

Dale Hardin level-deluxe 9/7/2012 9:58:18 AM

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. #10312995

Beth Spencer level-deluxe 9/7/2012 7:07:26 PM

I like the color one better than the Black and white one. I was just wondering how many of these you bought? #10313583

Dale Hardin level-deluxe 9/7/2012 8:45:58 PM

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. #10313667
