Much more focused after cropping... so much so that the people help move you toward the box. Cheers.

Alexeig, Great capture! Cannot say about the man, but the lady surely is looking at the display-box in the window. She might even be interested. Looks good now that you have removed the distraction from the corner. - Cat

Don, many thanks for comment. I eliminated a part of distracting elements, original submission can be found here:

Is it better now?
Passerbys: these are reflections of people who are looking at this moment at this very jevellery display maybe thinking about buying something. Thats why the pic is called "Desired".
And where is the box? The shop display is a confined three dimensional space roughly rectangular. Isn't it a kind of a box for this reason, proudly displaying what is inside?

Pillar, pipe, passerby and reflections all pull your attention away from what should be the focus... which is just as well since it's not a box :-) ... ok, maybe just in my eyes.
