Masses are not always correct!

Oh man! I am so surprised to see this one in 40th place with a 5.8. I gave it a 10 and think its beautiful! That red looks so rich. Hmmm. Confirmed once again that too many times I suck at being on the same wavelength as the masses :( Awesome photo!

I like the whole set up and look of this image, but it appears to be a bit of a double image to me, especially noticable around the "Nikon" and "D70".

Horrible double effect caused by the mirror on the nameplate mars this, rather. It's a little bit "here is a picture of my camera", though the background cloth is a pleasant colour.

Cool shot here...

Beautifully conceived and executed. Probably the most elegant self portrait here. Colors, comp, focus & lighting are all superb. I like that you flipped the image so "Nikon" reads correctly. Among my top picks.

Oh yeah. Definitely what I had in mind too - 'cept you've put it together rather well. I see the silhouette from the reflection on the mirrors' glass - any ideas on how to prevent that (ie, glassless mirrors?)

gave this a 7. i love the beautifully rich red colour of the backdrop; looks really striking against the black of the canera body and lens. clearly the shot is suffering a bit from the distortion (less solid reflections) from the glass in the mirror, but the overall shot is so strikingly in your face it doesn't hurt it that much. nice.

Like it a lot. You could sell it to Nikon ads.

Very nice display.

this is ready for a Nikon ad..well done..and this is from a
Canon user: I like the use of the red fabric and interesting lighting effect.

Annoying ghost reflection from front surface of mirror. But at least I know that this is the real deal and not just a photograph taken with another camera. Your use of an ultra-wide angle lens makes this work with an eligant angle.

Nice shot!

I think the camera should be lower in the composition of the image. It is a shame about the "Blur" or "Double Image" on the hot shoe and Nikon logo, though I found these to be pretty hard to avoid when shooting into a mirror!

love the red and the composition...weren't we supposed to use the camera to take a picture of itself though?
