Nice take on the challenge. Lighting is great. Seems like a little better focus on her face would improve this.

nice reflection but since youve cut it out mostly I think youve removed the glass as your subject.

This is a nice portrait, but the glass doesn't really factor into the shot much.

Pretty model and a good pose. Not sure the mirror helps here since it seems to wash out her arm a bit.

not bad as a portrait, yet I don't see too much of a connection with the challenge.
maybe it's the mirror?
if so, then it isn't a big enough part of the composition for my liking.

I'm a fan of portraits, and you have a good model for this one. My problem with the image is that while it does have glass and satisfies the rules in that respect, it's just a portrait happens to have some glass in it. Nothing interesting was done with the glass in the image, and if anything, it detracts from the portrait by giving us great view of her armpit. Please though, let me emphasize that I DO like the image - just not the use of glass in it.

ashleigh is extremely pretty...the background is quite distracting and perhaps a better setting would have worked to your advantage. As it is, it looks strange to have a mirror where you have one. Had this been a studio shot with a white or black background, it might have worked better

maybe including more of the reflection would make this a little less about Ashleigh and more about the glass..?

I think her right arm is overexposed.

I would like to see the subject as the actual glass

Different take on "glass" and I like it, especially the composition. Hopefully you won't get too many reduced scores for DNMC. Mirror is certainly glass.
