I had no idea what fascinators were... I simply thought you had found a swarm of jellyfish in an aquarium and applied some effects to create this image and then I Googled the word fascinators and discovered A fascinator is a headpiece, a style of millinery. Still looks like jellyfish.

I'm with Jan, no idea what fascinators are. Is it some new British style statement? Love the gentle saturation - it complements the sheer texture of the materials.

Plenty of fascinators in the US, at any wedding or summer race track! I thought they were jellyfish too, particularly the large white one. Well spotted, beautiful colours and detail, a happy picture.

Gillie is right, worn on the head - horse racing, especially on ladies days (although now banned on ladies days at Royal Ascot I believe) and weddings are the places to see these.
Maybe it's the break from monochrome but I think this is a stunning picture. Colour and composition are spot-on. Rather like a painting but sharper.

A lot of money is spent on these creations come Melbourne Cup day and other horse racing major events. Prices over 4100 are not uncommon. I love the colours Rob and the way they fill the frame,
