Mannequin Matching

The window dressings were phenomenal; in each window the mannequins' outfits matched the background fabric. Stunning. I had to take this shot from an angle to avoid reflections (didn't have a polarizer with me--or ANY gear). So I had to use PS's perspective crop to straighten it out. Even from the street, we couldn't see their toes. All that said, I still love the outcome. [Carolina Herrera at SAKS Fifth Avenue]
