Folks take a look at these shots what would you have done differently (lens, angle, exposure adding people) to capture this gift shop better?

Also look at this link - know it is not digital, but a gold camera:-)

I agree with the comments above.

You could try bumping the ISO and shooting in RAW so that you can adjust the exposure and white balance. You may have tried this already, but there wasn't any exposure information in your post.

Alternately, using a flash unitwith bounce or a diffuser might help. I personally don't like flash shots with harsh shadows.

I don't think these shots are in any way "bad." I agree with the previous posts about flash, I prefer not to use it if I can avoid it. My question would be: what is your reason for photographing your friends store, what are you trying to communicate?I think these those are good if you are wanting to show the size and layout of the store, perhaps for an ad in realty listing. If you were wanting to feature the store's wares, I would suggest getting closer to the merchandise and maybe trying some unusual angles.

My $.02, but I am still learning myself.

Merry Christmas,
Tim
