The photo of Winston Churchill above the door is a nice finishing touch.

Interesting shot. You don't see many shops like this any more.

Very interesting shot, so much for the eye to see. I think this subject would lend itself well to sepia toning, to give a real vintage feel to it.

hello Iain

Great candid shot, This would look better I think if it was B&W or slight sepia. It would match the feel of of this wonderful old shot

My first reaction is to want to see it in black and white. Nice composition. Classic store.

actually i love the colours. all that brown and the lady's matching outfit. i wonder if it needs the outer strip on the left though.

...i do love a lot of the details there. tough decision. i just played with it a bit. butchered it.

it works well the way it is AND with a severe crop, i think.

nice find!

I really like this, I probabley would have given it a sepia tone but you're right not to as the lady's clothes would make it look false. Cracking shot.

Excellent candid. As mentioned above, it may look better(already good)in b/w and tinted.

It's great to see that places like this still exist.
Where is it?

Simon, I found it somewhere in the City (London), I think it was near the Bank of England.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'll definitely try it in sepia.

Judging by the way things are going in Britain, it won't be long before there's a ban on looking in tobacco shop windows. Smile
