I wanted to call this Pic "the reason why my friends don't answer my phone calls"

My friend Gary is such a good sport but every once and a while you can see the exasperation in his face when I pull out the #@*&% camera yet again.
I took this at the diner after work. We were the only ones in the section and I was actually trying to get all the reflections in the glass and chrome.

I like that I'm centered in the chrome and if you look closely you can see me in the corner showing off my camera technique in the mirror behind my friend Gary.

The photographer in the reflection is awesome. People on this site need to get some imagination and realize that there is more to do stylistically than ansel adams, vogue shots or Anne Geddes.

This is such a nice shot, with such wonderful control of light. The menu goes get in the way I suppose, but it could be argued that it belongs there, especially with your title. I also like you in the shot.

Seeing the photographer 4 times in the shot is a bit distracting, but the use of reflections is nice.

Your subject does not look like he's enjoying having his picture taken, but you look to be having a grand time, in three different places in the photo! In addition, the right side of the picture is muddled with the outside reflection of cars. I at least hope the food was good at this dinner :)

I would have voted higher but seeing the reflection of the photographer in the window was distracting

This image would probably be more interesting with two modifications: 1) you not be in the reflection, and 2) have your subject not look directly into the lens.

I find the photographer in the mirror rather distracting but good concept

is that you in the mirror?
the idea that the subject is seen in the mirror but seeing you with the camera also doesnt add to it for me ...

I see your reflection and you should have take the "menu" away while you took the picture

Very classy shot. The reflections, the camera toting woman, the deadpan look.... just look great in this composition.
