Greetings from the Critique Club!

First impression: This wonky little crowd of clay people and the way you turned them into multiple images really stuck with me during voting; I gave you a 6.

Artistic: There is a very constrained feel to this shot which forces the viewer to look past the figures, esp the foremost oof one - takes guts to present an image like that here! - and the middleground figure seems to be turned to the mirrors. But what's he looking at? Same with the one on the left slumped forward a bit, as they have no discernible faces. All very intriguing and makes people look longer.

Technical: I do think the composition is compelling, but wonder if shooting with less of the first figurine would have helped your score a bit. He takes up some room and looks headed out of shot anyway :-) Your lighting looks fine for the shot and the lack of poppy colours makes this one stand out. The mirror trick is achingly simple and so effective, good work!

Overall: Excellent job, I think this shot was severely underrated as it isn't blatantly obvious what is going on. Keep up the good work, continue to shoot what you like and enter what you like.

Feel free to PM me

I love how perfectly the curving mirrored image moves your eye to the "back" of the image. This is a great example of the 2D made 3D!
