A nice sharp pic. Did you use Picasa to process this one?

I don't know if you intended to have the red "bleed" into the shot or if you wanted to completely isolate the red from it.

I think it would work better if the red was completely isolated. It looks a little sloppy to me this way. Otherwise I really like the shot, everything else is very clean and has lovely contrast.
Very nice. where is this?

the focal B&W works very well with this shot. I like how you didn't isolate the red cushion, but added a blur.

What clever treatment to lift this ordinary scene into something special. It's like one of those greetings card photos.

My only concern is with th red glow around the cushion that I think could be toned down a bit for greater effect. Perhaps even erase the excess altogether, just leaving the cushion red.

It's a great looking bar though. You don't see many this smart over here.
