It's an interesting shot. I'm assuming you clued a picture to the mirror. My only question is why b/w and not color? I think in color this would be much better. B/W needs depth and tonality to make it work. With the shallow DOF you have here you need the color to make it more interesting. You also had total controll of the background. A different location for the car to begin with would also help.

I like the angle this was taken from and the play on words is good also. But the black and white tones seem a little flat.

I'm not sure about this one. I think less black on the left might help, and maybe one complete eye instead of 2 half ones. The mid level contrast in the reflection is a bit weak. A very difficuilt shot, I think.

Cool shot. The smaller mirror is a dead give-away. it's supposed to be convex right? LOL! Great trickery though :)

I'm sorry, but this picture is not visually appealing to me. It was a good idea for the challenge, though.

to be any closer would be touching - you mirror lies! Lies!

cool illusion, i think this would be better if it was in color. the duotone seems kind of boring.

I did a similar shot once, inspired by a "Far Side" cartoon... hopefully your attempt is doing better than mine did! :)

AHHHH, what are you trying to do scare the voters? B/W is good.

I like the idea but it would of been spot on if the face in the mirror was sharp! Good work!
