    Terrible title, but I hope it caught people's attention. :p

    I shot this in an old antique arcade museum in SF today. I actually really, really like it, and it may be one of my favorite shots I've ever taken. Comments? Critique?

    The "ghost face" (double!) is such a good addition to the nicely lit balls in that machine, I much prefer the originally shown photo to the one you linked us to. Much ... that ghost face is so cool!
    I am not surprised to hear this is among your all-time favourite photos now!
    Is the b&w your conversion in pp?
    Well done!

    Very nice .. I like the face in the image, not sure about its reflection though. But in principle it adds to the photo I think.

    Oh, and I am sure this one works really best in b&w .. well done :)

    I like your idea & the "Ghost" effect. I'd sure like to see the color version also. Cool pic! Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice :) I especially like this.
    The "ghost" looks so sad to be so close and yet... ;)

    I like the face, i'm just not a big fan of the reflections on her forehead.

    Thank you! Yes, the b/w conversion was done in post processing; I never shoot in black and white.
    Abraxas, I do like your edit, and I can't decide between the edit and the original. On one hand, I think the two faces adds something, but then your crop makes the shot look less cluttered. Thanks for giving me two things to work with, though. :)
