SALE : Passers-by reflected in outside store sign

Outside the entrance to a shop today, was a plain sign reading, "SALE."
It's smooth surface reflected the people passing by so I snapped away until these three appeared !! There was also a mannequin stationed nearby.

Very cool shot. I love shop window reflections and this is great as you waited for the figures to intersect with the sale sign. I love the woman with the bush head. Great fun capture!

Hmm... A bit sharpening and an additional contrast perhaps makes the details pop up more?

@Xerophytes: Good to have your feedback. On this shot, I was taking a picture of a piece of plastic...the nature of the figures reflecting was therefore fuzzy-edged. If I sharpened it more, I lost the effect of the Sale Sign. I'm looking froward to shooting some straight-forward 'people' shots soon. ;-) Thanks again !

Beautiful how you captured the refelction. I guess it's beautiful weather in Danville? Love the shot Dulcie!!
