This is really an awesome shot. I love how the person is in focus through the lens he is holding up. This is very creative and I think you nailed the execution. Congrats on the top 20 finish, and more importantly on such a wonderful photo.

Splendid shot m8. Great job with the b/w conversion, composition and lighting. I too very much like this clever and more creative take on the challenge.

My absolute favourite of the spectacles through glass type entries in this challenge...A really nice take on both the challenge and the delivery concept. Outstanding focus on the reflected image and a very nice B&W conversion

The lighting is good. The face is not quite centred in the lens, though.
