There's a really good chance I played a part in that barcode scanner getting into that store. Unfortunately, since that scanner is almost in the center of the photo and I worked for the company that made that scanner, that's all I see. My eyes keep springing back to it! In fact, I hold some hostility toward it. Rawr!

Wow. Awesome contrast, detail, the composition of candy-5hour-lottery-smokes-countertop makes my head spin in a good way always ending with the smirk on that guys face. Great shot and a well deserved ribbon.

Well done on the Blue Robert.

Did you lens correct this? The perspectives seem a bit odd...

Great toning and content though.

Great shot Robert and not overly PP.
Ordered chaos. Too much tobacco and sugar for my liking...seems like a good business to be in though :)

It's actually quite amazing what these little stores think is most important to have available... okay .... or maybe it's just what people want to have most? Good presentation. I like the sepia.

Marvelous. So cluttered yet organized.

Fabulous "Fill the Frame" 9

11/04/2012 09:53:00 AM
that's a lot to take in.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2012 04:42:30 PM
At least you had permission LOL They look slightly ill at ease but are probably pleased you wanted to take the picture. That's a lot of junk - candy, high energy drinks, cigarettes . . . Very glad for the conversion to black and white :) Voted earlier.

nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2012 12:31:40 AM
Lovely image and processing, sweetie.

I don't know about the juxtaposition of the no crash later display (which I think is shorthand for "no sugar/carbs crash") within inches of an extensive display of candy bars.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/02/2012 09:18:29 PM
Wow lots going on not sure about the processing, a bit too much for me
