I like the color vs. black and white, it is balanced well. Only problem here is your color self could be brighter, and not have the double reflection. Looks like you used a reflection off glass, so that might be unavoidable.

Well done. A nice portrait and a good example of the challenge. 8 Morgan

I find this shot fascintaing. Two self portraits in one. How was it achieved? It looks as though you're holding the photo in place, but for your reflection to appear on it, it would have to be stuck behind the glass. Anyway, job well done and certainly one of the more unusual shots on here

Interesting! Would have liked to see the hand in focus as well, to get an extra point. :)

Intriguing and creative way of managing reflection! Congrats

This has an interesting quality about it. One thinks about it and it shows different aspects of your character.

ok, I give...how did you do it???

Good one! Well done.

Very good idea, the mirror causes a slight doubling of the reflection which I find off-putting though.

Hello DPCer,
I like the way your 'real' hand in the photo seems to tie the photgrapher in with the two images. I think this is a great idea for a photo. I'll have to try and remember it. If I were to nit-pick, I would say that this one is cropped slightly too narrow. Maybe more along the lines of the Golden ratio.

the out of focus hand bothers me a bit here. I find it to be a bit of a distraction. I like how you have the black and white on the color reflection(?). Focus and clarity of you is good. lighting is also good on the subject, but again, not on the hand.

Real nice.

The best self-portrait I've seen by far.
