Brilliant photograph. Excellent processing. A neat way to make a fish eye lens. 7. By the way, congratulations on the baby.

awwwww so sweet! the way the mirror distorts things...sorta looks like you're standing in the middle of a heart shaped room...very fitting! :)

Nice use of hospital props to get a funky fisheye effect.
Congratulations : )

Jacko? In the hospital with da new baby?

Good perspective (nice fish eye lens <grin>), nice find.

How nice, Jacko...she looks just like you only smaller and more wrinkly...about the same amount of hair, though. Just kidding...what the hell can I tell from a convex mirror? Good eye, by the way. Also nice to know that you are thinking of photography when you just got another kid...I suppose that's a sign of a true photographer.

Congratulations Jacko!! I remember my daughter's first day like it was yesterday; now she's almost 5. You simply amaze me with the images you've taken. This one is great. 9

Ooooohhhhh! Congrats!!! What a cute idea!!! 10

I can't believe you got such a clear, well lit picture from a non-SLR camera in the reflection of a hospital convex mirror, so major points for technical difficulty there!

Apart from the technical merits, you really captured an incredible moment and the look on your face makes for one of the best portraits of this challenge.

Nice I love the composition. Congrats on the new baby.

My initial reaction to this photo was very negative. But I find it clever technically and conceptually. And when I veiw it in context of what it is communicating, I find my opinion of it has improved markedly.

02/18/2005 02:45:36 PM
Great picture! I guess those curved mirrors are good for something afterall. That hospital is remarkably neat, clean, and organized. 8

02/18/2005 12:32:47 PM
I believe congratulations are in order, you do the title justice as you look very proud indeed.

Anyway, the shot is so so, not good but not bad either so I gave it a 5. Looks like you got a nice candidate for a model though :o)

great angle
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 01:10:46 AM
very interesting shot and a great idea...very original. I think it might suffer just a bit because it is out of focus (and no I don't know how you could get sharper focus in a mirror like that) -- I'm not saying it's a bad thing.

One of my highest rated -- good work!

Hi Jacko...fun shot. Refreshing after all the sad looking people.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2005 03:52:03 PM
A great sense of humor and a very justifiable use of a fish eye. This image sparkles with wit. Bumping up.

Terrific idea, masterfully executed as usual. (I mean the photo, although it looks pretty certain that your beautiful new baby was equally well conceived, captured and processed). Congratulations on both counts. 8.
