I had the idea for this early. It took a while to get right. My poor patient daughter. We shot a lot of pictures over three separate sessions. She was a real trooper. The mirror is 8 1/2 feet tall and heavy. I drug it over near a window for better light. My wife shook her head when I taped a sheet from the ceiling for the background. I like the pic. My daughter liked it but thought she looked "creepy".

Wow! I am very, very happy and excited about my first ribbon. Thanks again for all of the great comments. And, a special thanks to my wonderful model/daughter.

Mark I can't believe I missed commenting on this. Such a great shot and well deserved ribbon. It left me thinking "man why didn't I think of that!"

This was and is my pick for the blue. Please tell your daughter she is beautiful and tell yourself that you did one H of a job photographing her. It fits the challenge perfectly and com positionally it is the strongest of all the entries - in my never so humble opinion.

A lovely complex and complete image, technically strong, and very powerful conceptually. There is something sort of Gerhard Richter-ish about this. Nice work.

Fantastic photo. Such a great idea and execution. And a darling model. My 'models' usually require bribes or payoffs to participate in one of my photo shoots. Congratulations!
