    A bit muddy, could use a bit of punch/contrast.

    I feel the same way...to my way of thinking, there is a lot of the scene is shown as mostly a large mass of light-toned gray values in the center and left part of the iframe, and it looks to me as if the application of a bit more clarity, or contrast, might be able to add punch to the overall bookstore scene.

    Here is a revised "Punched" version:

    I think it looks a little better - what do guys think?

    Thanks!

    I think this version,with its added contrast, makes a stronger photo.

    aaaahhhhh ... much nicer. But, (the big but), a touch of dodging on the guy and the books would really make the eye focus on the primary subject. I'd take a little off the top, the ceiling light is a distracting element.
