Default Shopkeeper in Hong Kong

HK is a fantastic city with a lot of character. Wish I could go back there anytime soon. C + C highly appreciated.

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.
