This hat image is in celebration of the common knit cap-hat and the magnificent abilities one can achieve while wearing one.

@peter.K: I'm not sure if all those caps are the same. : ) They might not all help us onto our heads! and - I know - who has abs like that?! Not many. : )

k@ from Paris, France

I love the scene, terrific timing & framing, super Becky (but that's personal, i don't like the harsh pp, natural image with such a great impact would rock ! But once again i totally respect your choice & enjoy the scene utterly)

6 Sep 2010 10:37am

@k@: Thanks. K! I think I've figured something out recently about my processing choices. I'm an ex-oil painter. Did it for years - I'm just thinking I might have some residual longing for painting going on here. : )

ORBIT from Kerman, Iran

AMAZING! Goooood job, Bravooo. : ))

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Wow, great shot! I love the dynamic moment and frozen action caught. The girls looking casually and the man standing, hands folded. These are all great stories happening at the same time. Excellent.

Phil Morris from Canada

Amazing freeze action made all the more amazing with the shoppers more intent
on the material they hold. Superb work.

Gerard from Dieren, Netherlands

Fantastic shot and HDR processing, the background is also great.

k@ from Paris, France

Now this info of being an oil painter changes everything and i have the key to read your images differently : thanks a lot, Becky, this is precious and i love when i can relate processing & being (my titles are important to me, not to everyone, since i'm a writer ; your processings are important to you, since you're an oil painter, this makes sense, absolutely***)

6 Sep 2010 8:19pm

@k@: : ) Ah thanks!! That's great. Ah - so you are a writer - this makes sense too! Some of the things I have learned about myself and others by doing this blog are amazing. Life - it's a great place to be.
