" Unfortunately, while many are not deliberately trying to turn from their focus of God, others deliberately are double minded. Many are immature or in sin issues that they have not dealt with, thereby not being obedient to Scriptures. Many hang on to their sacred cows, believing they should not take the test of the Word of God. Others appear to make choices to be double minded."

This reminds me of that one painting with the guy in the derby hat and the apple in front of his face. Great shot!

A good effect but one to invite the bell curve. I like it, because I am judging not the portrait aspect. Bumping up.

Very, very unique. I like the effect quite a bit. Great light on the glass and very, very crisp.

I guess shooting things through fluid-filled glass containers is the technique du jour. Think it works here better than the beer bottle, though I cannot say why. But I wonder whether we might be drawing near the end of the days where everything looks better through a beverage glass or bottle. I think I've gotten there.

Returning for comment: This is a good effect though perhaps a bit overused on DPC. It is well captured. I am not sure it works well under the category of portrait though!

i don't know anything about portraiture, so i'm using your image as a guinnea pig as to what i think i would or wouldn't do in this situation, as well as what i notice and get out of your image.

this is very, very clever, almost dali-esque. i like most everything about the image except for your treatment of the foreground and the background: the terrycloth picks up too much detail, and the wrinkles in the background come through too much. other than that, this is a shot i would like to attempt, myself. thanks for an interesting twist on the challenge!

Overall Calculated Average Score: 5, great idea, but seeing the whole face in the refraction would be more interesting for me personally

Very nice effect. Great contrast between the blurred background and the crisp wine glass. I'm sure you saw the other wine-glass portrait, which is a fun one, but I think that this one is much better composed. This strikes me as a top contender. (9)
