ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/125

Was taking a photo of the fish in an aquarium at a local Chinese restaurant and also caught the reflections of my daughter in the glass. The aquarium is set right next to the window that shows into the restaurant for everyone to see...hence the double reflection.

Welcome to the "Brown Club" I got my 1st (and only, I hope) not too long ago. I wasn't even trying for it either. I'm learning, but very slowly. Hang in there!

Congrats on the coveted "Brown Ribbon"! Add it proudly to your profile! Seriously! It's an accomplishment that a lot of people try to achieve on purpose.

This shot was better than it got. Peeps in here are often overly critical on shots that don't deserve it and allow those that do to go to higher ranks in my personal opinion. *smile*

Nice idea, but the lighting and focus are not good, and a single girl reflection would be much better than the double reflection

Neither the reflection or the fish are really in focus. I like the idea though.

Little too blury/grainy to convey the concept

Who's peeking on who?

I'm sorry, this just doesn't do much for me. I have racked my brain to figure out why, so as to be constructive. My biggest "issues" aren't really your fault...taking a picture through glass into water. You have no control over the cleanliness of the glass at an aquarium, so it's not worth mentioning (or voting you down.) I like the fact that there are actually two reflections of the girl. Just overall, I am left feeling ho-hum with this. Again, I don't think you should take that as criticism, just as an example of how art "speaks" differently to different people.

It's a nice idea, I like the double reflection, but the focus is a little off. Maybe focusing the camera manually (if possible) might have helped though I guess the shutter speed was quite slow so maybe some lighting from above the tank make have helped to get more light to increase the shutter speed ... it could be just the glass of the tank was too thick

For me this is a bit hard to fit into the challenge but I could be wrong.

Lovely, mysterious, fairytale image.

In your picture nothing is really in focus. I'm not sure what your main subject is. composition: both of your models look into different directions, the girl looks out of your picture (even twice: her and her reflection, or both reflections). this leads the viewer away from your picture and does not try to keep the viewer in the picture.

the idea is good but the clarity is not so good, better lighting would have helped here
