This photographer is useless. Has he not discovered A.F. yet. The flash head is all wrong for correct bounce. It looks like he's drinking a cup of tea with he's pinkie up. Not proper control over focus ring and should it be the zoom he's trying to do...goog luck. The complete grip lends itself to camera shake at low shutter speeds.
Please contact RB photographers for an aprentice position...lol. Hope you understand this to be a joke based on the recent thread.

Nice take and what makes this special is the faces in the background. Nice holiday spirit to this

normally these "shot into a mirror" pics are cliche' and boring, but something about this one really works, perhaps its the smiling faces in the b/g. well done.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: This is rather beautifully done. It may look snap-shottish at first glance but get past that and we have something that is well composed, has great coloration and is fun to boot.

Critical stuff: Not much, perhaps a tad more highlight recovery might have been welcomed.

Overall: I think you have captured a moment here... and a 'feel-good' one at that. Giving this a significant bump from my first viewing.

Great take on the standard family portrait. Good job getting everyone in the background to have nice expressions, and I like the slightly washed out colors here.
