Really good to see you back on the front page, JJ. Like the confusion of this - the non-squareness of it.

This was one of my favorites in the challenge. The funny this is that I almost did something very very similar. I bought a pack of those square mirrors at home depot with something like this in mind but the package only contained 6 of them and I eventually concluded that I needed 9 only I was too lazy and poor to go back to the store for another pack.

Certainly this is much better than any of my attempts came out or would have come out even if I had purchased more mirrors. It is, after all, about how good a photographer and visionary one is, not one's quantity of mirrors.

Congrats on the blue!

i tried to do a very similar shot with some mirrors i purchased at the store. I couldnt ever get the picture to come out right...YOU DID...awesome job..

I like the contrast of the reflection with the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really neat shot, very creative. The clounds in the top part of the mirror are a bit strong though almost distracting.

Quite an appealing image, well composed and edited (to contain highlights?). Both pespective (triangulation of square) and the single cropped mirror tile (at right edge) adds a welcome deliberate feeling to the geometry of the arrangement.

Given the relative underexposure of the ground cover, a very satisfying balance has been achieved between the acrcane and the stark. The larger depth of field evident here appears to make child's play of the conceivable difficulty to render both the tiles and their reflected images in focus.

The photograph also appears to avoid easy clichées often associated with mirrors, and, instead, radiates a clear and reflective quality. There are no better or comparable works, I could find, in this challenge.

I like the use of selective desat in this as it definitely works for this kind of image.
I have a few similar shots in my portfolio where I used pools of water with the same effect.
Hope this does well....9
