I think hand added something interesting to composition.
For lighting used energy saving bulb and I'm still struggling to make good white balance with it.

Processing: rotate + crop + adjustment layers: color balance, curves, contrast + resize.

Mirrors, blue bottle, oranges, and even hand were probably combined in other works too, but I was not copying anything particular that I can rememeber.

I appreciate comments.

Very effective! I espcially like the way the mirror sections the oranges and distorts them. An intriguing shot that is quite fun to view!

Getting this type of shot is more difficult than it looks so congrats on getting a great shot and a top 10 finish.

I think "Steal Life" would have been a clever pun. :)

The steal life is wonderfuly playful. Beautiful colors and the images within each other is spectacular. Is it really done with mirrors?

Very impressive; I like the concept as well as how it turned out. That's such a pretty bottle, wine anyone?

excellent idea, well composed. greenish cast from wrong white balance

great job! Only thing I noticed is the facet in the mirror. It breaks the reflections :)

Cool. Good visual impact.

I have that bottle! Very nice image. I like the bevel on the mirror giving some distortion to the reflection. I'm not real fond of the yellow color cast on the entire image. The more I look at it, the more its growing on me. But I think its going to hurt the outcome. Clone out the white splotches on the background for future use.
