    What is it about barbershops that make them such great photo subjects? Maybe their timeless nature? Lovely shot, Miles.

    This has a wonderful retro feel to it. I like the towels thrown over the chairs and how it makes the photograph feel warm - as if the people are just out of view.

    I like this, Miles. I've been thinking of doing the same thing -- sort of a series of barbershops after hours. I love the little pictures and things they put around their mirrors. The countertop clutter. The old brushes and things. The black and white adds a nice touch.

    Wow ! Great shot !
    Love the composition, and the contrast really makes the feeling.
    Is the narrow DOF intentional, or did you lack light ?

    Thanks everyone. I took this while waiting for the barber to finish his lunch. I have to see if I can persuade him to be in the next pic!

    I shot it at f1.8 because of the light but the Sigma 20mm seems to have some strange qualities sometimes. I have to take a look at it.

    Great tones, great p.o.v., kind of 50s newspaper shot, only thing missing is a dead mafia guy in one of the chairs!
