A scene from Champs Elyssées. This street is not only a parade street, the houses along it are full of exclusive shops and malls. As it was getting dark when I passed the area I concentrated on illuminated windows. This one is from a shop that sells eyeglasses and it is just one of many such shops in the area. What caught my eye was the depth of the room and the luxurious height considering that they are dealing with very small items. I got a feeling that this is not the cheapest way to get a pair of looking glasses.
This was at the time of the Chinese New year which explains the red paper moons.
A well polished floor too ;O)

i like it too. elegant, exact composition of an elegant place.
i like the dof too, and the silhouettes.
the yellow tone and the shinning floor give me a strange feeling of 'distant warmth' when looking at it.
great job you´ve done!

Despite the darkness, you managed to take a very good captured and sharp phto, Ebbe. You know that I like shop windows, I usualy take pictures of shops windows while my wife is busy with the shopping inside..
Excellent shot, and greatframing. I like very much the position of the "optical" on the upper corner. The viw inside is very interestin and I like the red Chinese decoratio balls and the yellow ligh. Very good composition.

This is a beautiful shot Ebbe.
The color is very well mastered, your compo is also good, classical, but clean. A nice shot.

The shop is cool and elegant, the right place to pay an obscene amount of money for a pair of glasses. The paper moons are a fine detail and you chose a good angle but I don't like the heavy yellow color cast so much, it takes an edge from the crisp elegance, there must be some color balance settings on your cam.

What a beautiful shot!the colors are so warm, and the depth is great! You're right it's a very classy style of shop, but the way you portray it, is very welcoming.
