Love the idea/concept, but agree that the crop is a bit too tight around the hand/fingers. Really like the use of negative space. Great shot.

I thought this was an interesting take on the challenge. The crop is a bit too tight on the left hand side but overall, I love the simplicity of this image. Straight and direct. Gotta love it.

I thought this should have been in the top two. Great composition. Most of all, I think the affinity of colors, from the background to the eyes, works very well. Great piece.

I love the composition here and the fading of the light over to the right.

I like the cracked mirror effect, but too much space in the background, as it overwhelms the focus of the mirror...

I like the minimalism of this shot. My only criticism would be the finger being cut off on the left hand side.

Clear focus on topic at hand. Well done. Although the face adds contents it does not distract from the broken mirror. Rule of 1/3 rds well applied. Angle of lid leads eye to focus point. No other distractions. MAYBE bit tighter cropping on the right? The space adds to the image, but may be just a tad too much

Very good. The background is "well done"

lots of unneeded space on right and top, crop too tight on left and bottom

Nice off centered subject. I like the use of negative space and the unusual aqua/green color.
