Boy, it has been a disappointing day! I am new to photography, just really got into it in December. I am a mom and a college student. I just found out that my school has a journal put out yearly that accepts literary and visual submissions from students. I took some pictures, but they were too dark. I couldn't get my pictures and my cover letter on the same disk, and the whole thing was just not going to come together! So, I gave up on entering my photos this year. I went searching online for photo contests, because I have been bitten by the bug! I took a great photo for 7 Heavenly Virtues, and worked on it today to get it ready for submission. I am so new to this hobby, so I am trying to learn a new language and technology. I got it all ready and went to submit it, only to find I was 17 minutes too late!! I am guessing that the contest runs on Eastern time? So, anyway, I want to show the pic here, and would love to get some critiques on it. I am brand new to this, so please be gentle! It is for Faith. OK, so how do I add a picture here? OK, it needs site imaging? Does this work:

my advice...always clean mirrors before you shoot them...they are fiesty!

Also, too much negative space will get you too...I think it's a great idea though!

Thanks! Yes, I do see what you mean about the mirror. ugh.
As far as the negative space, should I have zoomed in closer?

Or crop it...

I also tweaked the contrast a bit. :)
