I haven't posted here on DPChallenge in so long and every time I come back I remember why. While the top 10 photos are certainly great shots, this is absolutely fantastic and should have placed higher.

Nice sepia color tone. I don't get how you have a dark image and then around the camera have a white background? Nice job. BB

Very interesting unique and good photo. I like the way you gave "old" feeling with the duo color. Your face is very sharp, lighting is very good. Very nice photo :)

I'm not sure about the camera, but the portrait I love. If only you lowered your cheek a bit.

I'am going to be really bummed if this is a gimmick. Mainly because having used a few TLR's through the years this looks authentic.

This is awesome. I love creative poses, and I love the old-world nostalgia I feel when looking at this. I think I gotta give this one a 10. . .one of my very few!

I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking at, but I sure dig it.
Reminds me of the top view of a twin-reflex camera, oldschool.
I'm also curious as to how you set all this up.
Also, great use of shallow DOF around your shoulders. It gives it that extra little detail, and makes your portrait remind me of vintage film photographs.
