This is really good - perhaps a motion blur in the background would be better? I really like the colour one - this is a really interesting unusual shop.

I quite like the processing. OK the blur is maybe a little OTT but it fit's the title and vice-versa. I think it works better in BW, lol but the colour version is just too colourful.
