It looks like the front head is a girl looking up at her mom... this is really awesome and I think very badly underrated.

It gets better and better ...

Happy birthday! :) I like the idea a lot. I think I would've liked it better if the reflection had been sharp and the real you blurred, instead of the reverse.

Nice idea, good colors. Composition is nice but focusing on your hair should be on your face instead.

Great idea and pose. I love the angle and composition. Lighting is also good for what you were going for. Happy B-Day.

Nice soft tones and a real cutie. The background is a little too bright for my total liking. Anyway, Happy birthday! BB

Cute idea. Hate that the back of your head is more in focus than your reflection.
