All that glitters is gold

By MarvKoon
I took this picture through the window of a busy jewellery shop in the middle of the gold souk in Dubai. The window was made of two glass panes with a series of racks of gold bangles in the middle. I placed my camera between one of the racks.I wanted to see if my camera could capture both the reflection of the gold bangles as well as the busy haggling inside.

I have been to one of these, Marvin, and do think you achieved your goal here. However, the action would be better concentrated by doing a crop to the top, eliminating a lot of the gold lighting and also the two large light circles which catch the eye. Also, the window shelving is sloping down to the left, but the small stand bottom right is straight, so it may be better left as it is, or have just the small stand sloping after correction of the shelving.

great shot and very well seen, however i feel the top slice is a bit at ends with the rest and id be tempted to crop the top just above the mans chin and removing that white bar of light under his nose.

its really not critical to the image and concentrates attention on to the hands which are holding the chains.
