i like the idea of using a mirror, but i really don't like the hand and camera in the photo - i just don't see what it adds to the photo or the theme. a little boost in the saturation would have brought out the colors a little more.

NOTE: When taking pictures with a mirror, don't put yourself in the picture. It will give you lots of 2's and 1's even if it is a good picture. However, this one is not very good. Needs to be sharper, much much sharper.

The hand and camera are interesting, but i wonder if this would do beeter with just the jacks. I like it the way you've done it, but I'm not sure the masses will agree.

I am sure you have heard this...why did you leave the camera in the shot? takes the focus away from the subject. The eye moves off the jacks and right to the camera and it is out of focus. with the right crop this shot would have done well. (4)

Definitely repetition. They are on a mirror, right? I am puzzled as to why you included your hand and the camera, they detract from the image for me. That's totally subjective of course. Overall, I think the image is too grainy and a bit dark, some of that could be taken care of in post-processing.

I don't think you should have included the hand and the camera. But I don't know...

i like it...sans the hand/camera....but... i'm the first one to complain that no one gets my creative genius, so i won't factor that comment into my score. I like the lighting and the subjects, good idea and representation of the category. cool pic.

the camera in the shot is very distracting, had this been cropped with just the jacks would have been a much better shot

nice concept. I dont like your hand and your camera. If you crop those element your pic could be better.

I like the idea of this. The picture is a bit grainy, and the colors are a bit faded and washed out looking....other then that, it's a good creative idea! :)

This is interesting. The jacks look like they're floating.
