This is an old time hat shop that somehow exudes atmosphere.
I wonder if the photo captures some of that.

Did you try it in black and white first?

Yes, I have tried B/W.
I like colour better.

As with my other post, I'm looking for a critique.
Any takers?

I just keep trying to figure out what kind of car is being reflected in the window.  Probably not what you were going for.

No - but at least you're honest.

That's (the car) a real shame because I like the window image and the tones. Just convinced me there is a use for a polariser after all

Great Idea!  

Too many distractions; reflections, background, dirty window, unreadable sign.  

Subject matter is interesting, shadows are interesting, but it doesn't really come together.

Looks like a documentary shot profiling a certain 'age'.  As photographic 'art', no, too filled with distractions.

Missing a main, tight, subject; as Mr P was wondering about the set of wheels, perhaps a Hatmobile? Itīs just been that kind of day.
