This is one of my favorites this week. It is technically excellent and the angle really works here (at least for me). Nicely done!

Hello,
Interesting point of view. It hints at what your whole face looks like with out quite giving it away. NIce tones, and I like the slight grainyness.

I like this. I'm not 100% sure even now whether I'm looking at you and someone else connecting, or at a mirrored shot; the angle to each face is such that it's hard to be sure, easy to see them as different, and yet in all probability a reflection. I love that, and the choice of black and white for this photo was a good one; I think color would have distracted, in this shot.

Very dreamy feel to this good balance to the two images I like the way you had the mirror at an angle instead of vertical.

Wonderful tones and lighting here. The use of mirrors gives us a better and more complete look at this lovely model's face. 10

Wow -- great shot! Not all of us had such appealing subjects to shoot for a self-portrait, like you did :)

I find this is a very captivating picture. With the angles of the camera and the mirror, I almost feel as though your reflection is looking at you with a different expression, as though it is curious and filled with longing moreso than you are. Not having hair visible in the reflection contributes to that effect. Very nice picture, good work.
