The most challenging photo I have taken to date.
It is very rewarding to see on screen what I saw in my minds eye.
If you have ever taken a photo by candle light you know the light in this photo does not come from the lamp. And, if you have ever taken photos of glass you know it reflects every source of light around it. Quite challenging.

Critique welcome and appreciated.

Brilliant shot, David.


+favs for me..

... and all that follows from that sentiment.


p.s. Tried to critique your photo here.. I really can't find anything to critique.

Looks great full view/screen.

The intensity of the gaze, division of light and shadows.

Clarity, focus ... colour palette, et al.


Really nice work.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

What a beauty of a shot David. Has a good chance of winning the contest I would say.
Lighting is exceptional.

Exceptional photo David.
That stare is actually quite unnerving.

Emptiness is not nothingness. It is simply the opposite of full of it.

Awesome! It would be cool if you had a good one to just paste a window frame over it, but it would be hard to get the depth to look this good. Awesome! Keep it up!
