Daisy was bell ringing at church with her school this week as part of their Christmas celebrations. It was a fantastic morning which really put me in the Christmas Spirit

On the way out I looked at the church organ and I noticed that it had this huge rear view mirror on it, so I nipped up to check it out and was delighted to discoved just how much you could see in it.

I love this shot....therefore expect a 4.6

You did better than you expected. I really like the use of the mirror for a perspective shot, but I think many don't follow this as many have never sat in the organist's spot. The orange color background really works well. I just wish it were ever so little bit sharper (i am a sharp freak - if you haven't noticed).

Unlike some of the other commenter's, I like that the mirror does not fill the frame. The fact that it is slightly off center really brings home the idea that it is a rear view mirror. I like the fish eye aspect of the image in the mirror.

BTW, what a beautiful church!

I agree with Michelle... and the mirror could go from edge to edge. That said, I really like the perspective.

I love how clearly you can see everything! A great view for the organist to not miss a thing.

Awesome idea. I wish it were center cropped tho. I love that the back wall is solid and the mirror is full of detail.

I never realized they used rear view mirrors! Placement of the mirror more to the right of the frame may have helped the comp some.

Nice way of an alternative lens to make PERSPECTIVE ... Just wish it was cropped closer ...

great idea to show perspective! i don't think the background colour does much to emphasize the mirror and it's reflection, but overall it's a great photo.

oh, funny idea! Also the orange colored background works well. Only the stripe in background distracts a tad
