I've have been waiting to write anything in here until my image was validated, and now it has been.

This is a colleague of mine that I asked to pose behind a frosted paned glass door at work. It is our "lunch room" and I am standing, actually sitting on the sink to be as far away from the the door as I could get with the 50mm, in the dark, with light on behind the subject in the hallway. I asked him to do various distances of his head to the glass to get the ghostly head and neck shape behind.

It is called "Frosted Glass Redemption" because my previous personal best was a "self portrait" behind the same Glass that was DQ'd for improper storage of the original. I like this one, hope it would do well, and redeem my honor somewhat.

I realize it is a bit creepy and stylistic for some and thats OK.

here's the first one.

It truly is a great pic, but I've got to admit I got kind of chuckle out of it. It reminded me of this video:

now this was my idea all along, except I don't have that type of window, not sure if you can pull this challenge off, but I sure hope you can. I really love this....and I'm going to bump to 10, and awarding you my Verineat Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpgfor being so Vericool!

There's something froggy about this!!

This is my choice for best in the challenge.
Gave it a 9 as I didn't give anything a 10 in this challenge.
IMO, it'd be a little better if the face was pressed up against the glass giving the look like they're having sex. At least that's the first thought when I look at a photo like this.
