So if this is a mirror, why is the word "LENS" and "24-70mm" not spelled backwards? How did you do that?

Very very nice. Great detil and one of the most creative looks in the challenge. Expect this to do real well. Bumping up.

Very nice idea, and a gorgeous photograph. I'm not sure that the blurred frame of the mirror is a desirable feature, however. Still, it's far more interesting than the majority of shots in this challenge, and there's a glossy feel - and the tightness and cleanness of the focus and tone stands out a mile. Good job!

08/21/2006 03:07:16 AM
very good effort and effect

08/20/2006 02:10:53 PM
Very creative....there's that lovely face again. Love that you used B&W for this.

Less camera, more babe. J/K, nice shot. Like the BW and the clever composition. nicely done.

very different and "eye" catching
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2006 07:33:37 AM
what a great picture!! I love how the unvailed face of the girl makes me wonder what she looks like. love it:)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2006 09:36:16 PM
Great idea but, for me, the main subject should be the camera. I feel there should have been more of the camera visible.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2006 09:12:55 PM
Like this a lot, very unique in the challenge! Good choice with the B/W. 10

Beautiful! So creative and crisp. Excellent B&W. Back to give you a bump to 9. Nice work. Blue IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 03:44:10 PM
Good focus, but the photo seems too busy for me. I think, for this challenge, the camera should be the subject.

08/16/2006 03:30:23 PM
great shot ... very well done ... wish I could see a bit more of the camera ... 8

i can't quite figure out how you did this, but it's one of the best ones here!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 07:32:23 AM
excellent! exposure is spot-on, DOF is perfect. highly creative approach to the challenge - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 06:51:56 AM
Easily a ribboner for me - Probably the blue!
Lovely contrast and tonal range.
Technically a good shot too to have the girl at the same focal distance as the reflection of your camera. Maybe more of the camera would have fulfilled the challenge a bit better, but I'm not going to penalise you for that!

A 10 from me.
