PS... Such a contrast to the self portrait Bear entered :-)

You caught the mood perfectly, it's as if we are transported to that cold car. Couldn't vote or comment because of being away and on a small device.

I admit, I did not give this photo the merit it deserved (score of 6). It does indeed exude warmth and the back-light is magnificent.

Within and without, the car and the storm, the parking lot away from the roads, his quiet demeanor and his inner drift. Could be felt to be claustrophobic, but I, for one, am too drawn into the intimacy. The composition is curiously balanced. In a way he's almost extraneous since the focus appears to be on the mirror. A fine, fascinating image.

this is the most natural light in the challenge

I'm hanging this in my fantasy portrait gallery

An interesting choice for a portrait of someone... with the person being blurred and the cars in focus.

I'll be interested to see how this scores for you.
