While it's candid for sure, there doesn't seem to be any point to the photo. Your title attempts to give it focus, but it's not enough, IMO

Nice photo but I find eyes wandering for a subject, I tend to be drawn to the display above the ceiling rather than the people at the right of the counter.

Variety in midtones seems slightly lacking, but not flat by any means. I like the diagonal and the level of the camera was perfectly placed to minimize problems on the top lines. All elements of this shot are in good focus which is very important to tie into the title.

The two most disrupting elements of the shot however are the overexposed lights in the pyro cases and the shadowy clothing of the male subject. He being half of the candid (title) should have more contrast and depth of detail. The far end of the counter is distrupted by an unfortunate passerby, but to have cropped him would have hurt the blance of the lines and diagonals in the upper roofing. An average shot that would do 1-2 points better with a wider variety of tones and some selective burning down of the lights. 5

I know one idiot who blew up a Canon 1D Mk2 worth of fireworks. :)
