    nice photograph (: i think it's interesting the way you shot from the back to include both the subject and the reflection, but focussing on the reflection in the mirror! i shot a similar photograph of a little girl having her hair cut on CNY eve..
    it's a photo that relates to the person being photographed as you can see the reflection (what the person sees when he has his haircut) and also relates to the third-person perspective..
    it might be a little cramped visually, but then again reflective of the arrangement of quite a lot of the old-school barbers (: which i like!
    the black and white can be improved upon though, i feel. have a better/smooth gradation between the darkest and lightest point.. makes it look more real and stunning/compelling..
    good work (:

    personally I'd open the apature just a tad more or add half an EV. I know the focus isn't on the barber, but his reflection on the mirror is a little dark.

    Or focusing in on the Customer's expressions. For all we know, the read and the hair cut is boring him to sleep...

    #1, the focus should be on the customer face but it is not sharp, and the shampoo bottle behind him is sharp.
    #2, both faces are underexposed.
    #3, improve the contrast of this photo, the white point should be the on the highlight of the customer's shirt.
    #3, you can crop away the right side, till the ear of the barber.
