Hi Tom: I like this. Colours look great, it might be just me but it looks a little crooked, and I might try cropping (I always want to crop something, sorry) or somehow removing the stools and what I think is a coat hanging at the bottom right. That probably means the door would have to go, which might not look as good. I don't know, If it was my photo I'd be trying it.
I wonder if this might make it into the "Lifestyles" section of Alaskan promo material. (just kidding) Great shot, it made me smile.
Please note, comments above are from a casual observer viewpoint.
I'm with Wendy in liking this. For me it tells a strong story. I would call it a photo-essay. I'm not so bothered by the stools and coat on the hook. The bit that I thought was a distraction is bottom left. Is that the corner of the bar? If you had taken one step to the right you would have reduced its significance (and got rid of the stools for Wendy).
ps - Go back, have another beer and shoot it again!

Exactly! that's what I wanted to say and couldn't find the words. photo-essay describes it perfectly.For me it tells a strong story. I would call it a photo-essay.
