I liked the idea behind this photograph. It portrays such a common feeling of despair that I think most people could identify with it. It's a nice photograph too. The lighting in the side-mirror is very interesting. I am wondering if the mirror ought to be bigger in the frame as the background seems a bit dull and unappealing. It is a good idea though.

Wonderful use of contrasting colours.

Been there, done that. Not sure if everyone will get this, but you'll reach the commuters. The position of the mirror might have been more interesting if it was less 'centered'.

This appears too candid, but will be a greay shot after you can edit it!

Don't understand how this meets the challenge "despair"

Clearly tells a story. i like the contrasting tones and hues: dull ahead, bright behind.

Every working person can identify with this. I love the contrast of the sunlight in the mirror and what's a head. Makes for a really neat photo. Wish you could have gotten the foreground in a little sharper focus. But it's still a unique photo. I really like it.
