This time I’m presenting you a completely different photo subject, a photo from small photo shop (and the manager, my friend Simon) in Subang Jaya.
Subang Jaya is a suburban township city in Malaysian Klang Valley, located about 20 km from the Kuala Lumpur city centre.
The town was developed between 1974 and 1988, the site was formerly an oil palm plantation.
Today, Subang Parade, Empire Subang, Sunway Pyramid and the hypermarket chain AEON Big serve as the main shopping attractions in Subang Jaya. The exclusive department stores Parkson and Cold Storage are situated in Subang Parade whereas Tangs and Jaya Grocer are situated in Empire Subang.
Sunway Pyramid, a popular shopping complex for local and foreign tourists, is situated at the adjacent township of Bandar Sunway. It is one of the largest shopping malls in the world. Jusco and Parkson are Sunway Pyramid's main anchor stores. Within the area, there is the popular Sunway Lagoon, an amusement park which is a popular landmark across the nation.
SS15 serves as the city's main commercial centre. There are plenty of international F&B outlets and banks. One of the most famous food courts in the Klang Valley, "Asia Cafe" is located there where there is a wide variety of famous local hawker stalls and entertainment outlets, such as internet cafes and pool centres. Besides that, there are plenty of high-rise office buildings and apartments within the area.
Lastly, there is a retail mall in SS15, namely the First Subang which has Giant Hypermarket as its main anchor. The building also hosts a few pubs for nightlife.

Salut cher Miro
Your friend seems like a very nice man. I like his smile. The image looks to have been shot with a fish-eye or ultra wife-angle lens, and I really like the distortion it's created. An interesting, arty and different shot. Nice work.

Interesting photo of a shop useful to all photo lovers. I like the distortion created by the lens, it makes the shop look bigger. Nice crisp and clear photo. Thanks for sharing.

Bonjour, cher Miro,
Très bonne présentation générale de ce magasin et de votre ami. La note est parfaitement rédigée et nous apprend beaucoup sur ce très grand centre commercial.
Un sourire naturel de votre ami vendeur incite à découvrir les trésors de son magasin.

J'aime beaucoup l'utilisation de la 15 mm pour cette composition. J'aime les angles déformés dans les coins et surtout le fait que ce soit un magasin de photographie.

You have captured well the smiling expression of your friend. The 15mm lense is allowing me to see a fisheye view of this section of the store. It also has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Clever title! :) A place I'm sure we can all appreciate and/or fear when it comes to the cost of the things we want to purchase to support our passion for photography, yeah? haha
The fisheye effect doesn't always work, but you've utilized it to perfection with this shot. Smart placement of your friend so that he stays "in tact," while the rest of the visual is distorted. Good white balance too, the colors appear natural, which can be a real pain under artificial lighting. An unexpected picture here, I love the originality of it. Great idea!

I like the distortion that the fisheye lens introduces. So you were able to have a panoramic view of this Photo Shop without resorting to Photoshop! (Sorry, couldn't resist!)
Is the soccer coach a French Murat or a Turkish Murat?

Excelent use of the (new) lens, Miro. even the smile of the guy on the counter is "forced" to be wide... my humor only.
Nice clear shot indoor, many details in exquisite view.

You've provided a superb note to give meaning to this photo. Clearly there is a festive mood resonating in the mall.
