For some odd reason, this reminds me of some of ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' librodo's work - although I know it's not one of his normal subjects. Great stuff with fantastic lighting.

Have not seen this movie in years so I am not as familiar with the scene set-up. Is the composition recognizable from the movie it emulates? Yes. Would is be recognizable without title benefit? Yes, I believe it would. Lighting is absolutely great illuminating your subject perfectly. Composition is very interesting for we see the individual looking at himself in the mirror and we see the reflected image back. It is if we are discovering this 'face' at the same time as the Crow. Colors in the scene are very good. Dark colors with the white of the Crow's face keeping in the tones and dark mood represented in the film. Details are nice and sharp. Good capture - coming back to bump up to 9.

awesome! Great movie! 10

This is a great shot and I love the idea.. Gets a 10 from me... The only possible suggestion for improvement in my eyes is to lose some of the empty space on the right side of the image. There isn't much there supporting the idea...
