Black is beautiful

Another recent favourite of mine that did not get much reaction - but a clear candidate for one of my best shots of the year. I came across this subject in an Antwerp fashion store. Whilst my wife was looking at the clothes, I was peeking behind one of the interior walls to stumble upon this perfect scene. The vignetting, a rare feature in my pictures, was done to get rid of a too white spot in the top right corner.
