Fantastic shot. This is just how a bookshop should be. I wonder if they get different books in NY.
Look forward to seeing more.

Hi Phil, an absolute belter mate, glad it got a 'big badge' off Mr B, simply superb.
I can smell that wonderful aroma of old books when I view this, top drawer stuff.

I like to think that the store assistant is your pilot as highlighted in the book titles.

What an off the hip shot!
Hello, new to all this, even had to look up what you meant by DOF. I love the picture for the atmosphere it produces. If I had seen this pic I would have wanted it all in focus, do you think this would detract from the picture and its atmosphere?

No, the atmosphere would be the same i think, but the difference in focus adds to the 'depth' of the image perhaps...some times photography can be about creating a 3d perspective out of a 2D media

now that sounds like i planned it all..ha ha Tongue

thanks all

I thought I'd voted on this ages ago, as I've always loved this image. Superb bit of photography just superb (would have got my award had I seen it at the time).

Wonder what it looks like in mono?
