I had an idea to how I wanted to made the shot for this challenge, but when I was preparing it, suddenly realized that I could see the reflection of the camera in the filter of the lense. So I changed my mind and went for it. Good exercise about lightening. Learned some things, so the time used in making the shot has been fruitful. About the result, don't know, can fall to the 4+ or can win a ribbon...OK, I know, it will fall.
PP: ACR, USM, resize, borders, USM, save for web.

The idea's interesting, but the net effect is vast amounts of blurred picture.

This was a really good idea, I think the execution of it could be better. The blurry foreground image was good, but this is too blurry for my tastes.

Mmmm... capture of reflection, not easy. Hope they not gonna rate you for the focus. I quite like it.

A very clever idea! This is one that needs to be done outside the rules, as a composite, so "both" cameras can be in focus.

I like the focus being on the reflection in the lens, though I think a tighter crop would emphasise this. I don't think you need the whole of the OOF camera in the frame.

creative execution... i like how the focus draws you into the lens. :) sort of an abstract nature to it.

Love it, creative and cool. I think the lighting was done perfectly.
