Self Portrait through a marble in front of the bathroom mirror. I didn't intend entering this challenge but found this marble at the house about 6 hours before deadline and thought of this idea. I took three shots and used this one. Probably shouldn't enter but I haven't in a while so I want to click that button:) After taking this I thought of a much more meaningful shot but time and light was against me, I'll save it for later.

This was a good idea, and well done shot. The back light on the top finger does a lot for the shot. The dual focus thing is just great!
This would be a little better to shoot with the camera on the other side, and self timer or remote, so that your face shows.

This is a good idea that worked out well. Not sure what went wrong with the black halos around the fingers though
