Good shot with great depth. I find myself wondering how it would have looked in color. Either way, it's a good one.

Great idea, very good shot… Although the picture is well composed, sharp as a knife and the DOF is perfect, I don't – personally – think the shot works too well in B&W. The reflection doesn't carry much power; the shades of grey within the reflection seem to darken into a babble of unidentifiable shapes. I think, had you used colour, this wouldn't have happened. It would be interesting to see a colour version after the challenge… Other than that, the way you have chosen to do the shot works very well indeed… (8)

Well presented with BW, and a nice subject in the reflection.

Trying to judge sunglass pics on own merit. B&W helps, nice reflection.

Nice reflection! Challenge met. To me, the black and white darkens the foreground of the bridge too much. No slam on B&W, but didn't it look better in color? 7 Swash

i like this photo, but some may not because there are many other sunglasses shots.

This technique, though interesting, has been overused here lately. I do realize it has been a tough challenge to come up with something original though. You did a good job, and the reflection is interesting. Congrats! Good luck in the challenge. Grayce aka Gracious
