This is a shot of one of many simple but ever so cheerful and tasteful shops that can be found in the older parts of Amsterdam.

First, as I look to the thumbnail, I hesitated to open it...
a bit overcharged, too many objects, elements - for my taste - on the left, contrasting to the vertical lines on the right. But, the colours, said... I lke the idea, to put also the colours of the dutch flag

I like the busyness of this image along with the good technical qualities of it. It gives the eye something to explore and analyse in relation to your note about the shop being typical of many shops in the older part of Amsterdam. I would love to experience in real life what you have shared with us here.
I am aware that there are photographic "rules" about what makes a good image. Quite often critiques of an image are about there being no single point of interest to which the eye can be led and come to rest. However, I feel that the point of interest in this image is the whole of the image rather than a part of it.
I am putting forward my following opinion so that you can see how I would think about your image if I was hypothetically asked: " What small adjustments would you make, in your opinion, to improve it?". If it did not substract from the story being told, I would consider exluding the part of the bicycle wheel on the left and the red door and number 23 on the right and possibly either include the whole of the sign above the shop door or exclude it altogether. Having said that, I have seen your gallery and appreciate that you have an excellent eye for what makes a good image.
