I walk past this timber shop on my way home from work every evening and always liked the look of the shopfront. Today, that car parked in front of it combined with the evening light filtered through a tree made it perfect. This could easily be 1956, not 2006. I've tried to convey that feeling with my choice of processing.

Ooooh, this looks like you ripped it right out of LIFE magazine. 1956 feel: success! Great work!
Now, where's my bookmark tab...

Beautiful. I love the timelessness of this shot. As you said, it could have been taken 50 years ago!

Before I read your words I was wondering at it's timeless feel...very nice work and great processing. Phil

Nice job with this one! I agree that it does feel right out of Life Magazine.

I recently shopped here - and it is a very wonderful little shop. Long may it continue to exist.
