Odd, but to my eye, the two in the photo don't seem very passionate in their embrace; rather, they seemed posed, a bit staged, with the woman's eyes looking blandly at the photographer, almost removed from the man's one handed "embrace". Good concept which could use some work in better coaching the models to set the appropriate mood.

I think the idea and technical execution of this shot are both great. The framing is spot on, monochrome was the right choice, and the set-piece use of the mirror was great.

But someone forgot to tell the woman about the "passion" bit. It looks like she is much more concerned with the camera than with the guy.

To me this tells a story, with the mirror the main point of interest. The title if very fitting. I also like the black and white. Bumping up!

The choice and positioning of lighting did little to enhance this image. Perhaps its just me, but I find the presence of all those shadows a tad distracting. Good luck to you in the challenge.

I think that this would be more effective if the woman wasn't looking at 0 degrees... it seems as though she's uninterested in the man and distracted. Otherwise, I think that a higher crop on the bottom, but so his hand is still visible, would be great... very cool idea and nice BW

Great concept. But she looks more anxious than passionate.

The shadows hurt you a little here. I like the idea, and I like the blinds in the mirror. She doesn't look particularly passionate, though.

The glass is not the subject (and there doesn't seem to be much passion).

Passion? what an interesting expression. Tighter crop - only top of picture would have been more intriguing.

I think the lighting is a little too harsh in parts and her expression is a little off putting. She's a Beautiful women! Don't get me wrong. But with passion in the title I'd hope to see some sign of that other than the "fine. i'll stand here for the pic. just hurry it up. I got laudry to go fold." look and stance. I'd prefer she were at least visibly holding the man as well.the tones in this photo are great and of course its plenty sharp. the technicals are there just not the emotion.

Sorry, I am not getting any feeling of passion from this image. The woman is just standing there, no emotion at all. I don't think the looking glass/mirror is the focus of the image and therefore probably a stretch for this challenge.

Nice idea. The lower third of this photo doesn't add anything to the mirror, nor to your title. It might be better to crop off the bottom near the front edge of the dresser.

..and lack of! Has the look of a candid shot, which is great for your theme.

She doesn't look very passionate
06/28/2006 07:57:27 PM
Wonderful facial expression! Why do girls love to wear our shirts? I will never get this ;)

Shadows take away from what I feel is a very good photograph. I like the expression on the Female face.
06/28/2006 05:07:40 PM
the flash casts a very harsh shadow
06/28/2006 09:22:50 AM
Nice image. Don't think the title fits well though. Her expression or body language seems to convey the opposite of passion.

Nice, But She doesn't look very passionate in that reflection.
