Thanks for looking

Excellent shot of the local apothecary. I like how his wares are displayed behind him, revealing his profession. He must be a wise old man. Thanks for sharing, welcome to the forum!

I like it.
Have you tried it in B&W? Perhaps with a contrast bump too.

yes I like it and the portrait, but it feels a bit like all those jars are about to fall off the shelves, not sure if it's the angle of the shot or what but it makes me nervous. :)

thank you all so much for your comments :).

@darsk I tried the b+w, but I didn't manage to get a really good looking picture. Why don't you have a go? :) I'd be delighted to see your (probably better) attempts at PP

I don't think the OP had the editing OK displayed when he posted. It's on now. I think the B&W is a better looking image....good stuff bikerider.

I love the composition of this shot. Nice work. I really like the B&W version of it!

Good shot. The conversion to B&W looks good, but still prefer the softer colours of the first.
