Voted eralier, returning for comments.

Cool and visionary with that semi abstract look. Bumping from 5 to 7. Good work.

Amazing composition in this shot. Great balance of various lines. And a very nice, scenic image in the small mirror. Perfect DOF choice as well. 10

A very unique submission-- I like that! Good job matching the black border with the mirror border. Excellent composition. The ONLY complaint I have is the content of the detailed part of the mirror. It's not as breathtaking as the rest of the photo makes me want it to be (not really your fault anyhow), but it is what accomplishes the vanishin-point challenge-ness of your entry. That's all that's holding me back from giving you a perfect 10. Great job!

The framing that blends in with the mirror makes for a wonderful abstract shape. The bold black color makes your eyes focus in on the smaller blindside mirror.Colors are very vibrant and is the final touch to a great shot. "10"

The thick black borders of the mirrors combine with your border to create an illusion of a stained glass window. The blurred colours in the main section add to that feel. The exposure of the segment in the smaller round mirror are a little dark and unfortunately not hugely interesting in terms of content. That said I think this is a really creative idea and you deserve kudos for the unique perspective.

I gave this photo a 3. It took me a long time to figure it out. I like the vanishing point showing up in the mirror and the blurred look you got in the forground, but the solid thick black frame that appear to be as thick as the black around the edge of the larger mirror is distracting. It looks as if the bottom and right of the picture is suppose to be cut out.
08/13/2004 06:24:12 PM
What a great idea. And so well done. The colours are lovely. The frame is a little iffy....but it kind of works....

Good luck

Very interesting take on this challenge. well done. I really like the colors and the use of the border and I usually hate borders. <7>

i thought about using my side mirrors, but i would have never been able to achieve what you did. excellent... and i love the border, too. 10... this is a work of art.

Nice composition, I like the strength of the black lines. THe corner of the other car visible in the mirror is a bit distracting, but otherwise it's great. good color and focus, too.

Really interesting elements. I'm going through the entries saying "no,no, ok, good, good" and then I hit yours and go "wow!" 10

Good idea. Fantastic colors, great framing. I like the way you make the thickness of the mirror and the frame the same. This one is a 10

Really sharp and a strong composition. I think the frame is just a bit too heavy, but understand why you went that way. To be ultra-picky the appearance of the tail-light at the bottom right of the round mirror bothers me. Overall, a real attention grabber.

WONDERFUL!! Great use of those mirrors. I hope this one gets in the top 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2004 01:38:33 AM
WOW! This is an incredible image. By far the best rear view image I've ever seen. I'm curious to know if it came out of camera basically like this or if this is creative post-processing. Either way, it doesn't matter to me cause this really works. The complimentary colors are perfect as well. A top shot. 10

The lines and colors provide a nice abstract quality to this. The smaller mirror serves as a portal to reality. (8)
