My daughter got these glasses as a gag gift at school a couple Fridays ago, and I decided to have some FUN making funny faces in the mirror.

The different perspective was "INTENDED" to be a self-portrait shot from below, and euphemistically a different "take" on self-portraits, and for me effusive humor, instead of my normal "dead-pan look" of minimal emotion.

Ergo, perspective stood more for mental viewpoint than for physical viewpoint. I knew that this wouldn't do that well in score, but I was having too much FUN with it to care.

Sometimes, it is important to just LAUGH! ;)

Sorry maybe it is just me but I really don't get it. I like that you covered the flash though but I'm not a fan of the rest of the shot.

kinda funny, but it just comes across as a weird/goofy shot someone does when they first get a new camera, and i dont really see anything that shows using perspectiv to create a dramatic image
