I imagine you used a bit of hdr here and IMO it is well done. It looks to be very well lit more so than a processed effect. Seeing the exterior through the windows is a real plus.

Thanks Patrish, the process wasn't one of the quick fixes that you've seen me do. :)

I'm pleased you noticed that Al. I under exposed the interior, which still left the scene through the windows over exposed. Luckily I was able to recover both situations in post. Perfect example of why we should shoot RAW.

Very nice, I don't know how much freedom you have to move round this shop but the opportunities for detail shots are unlimited.

good job on balancing your light.

Not to say this would be better more like a personal preference, but I would like to see the inside of the shop a little darker with more shadows to give the objects more dimension and shape.

I'm with Scott on this one, I bit more shadow (particularly in the back corner of the room) would add more shape/structure. A very interesting image nonetheless and it's great you get to view outside too.

Thanks for the comment everyone, I really appreciate them.

On the subject of shadows, I spent a long time in post eliminating the shadows because the image is meant to be 'arty' not a record of the event. If everyone produced images which conformed to a set of rules, what a boring hobby we would have.
