Print: Chairs in Suspense

I found this bizarre wall of chairs inside a shop in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The light was very poor; I had to shoot wide open at f1.8 in order to get an acceptable hand-holdable shutter-speed of 1/60th. So... while it's not the sharpest photo I've ever taken, I'm proud of how it came out given the conditions. I tilted the composition a little bit for the final print to give the chair more of a floating look. I used my Olympus Pen FT with a 38mm lens on Kodak Tri-X 400 film. The physical print is 5x7 inches.
