    So I hadn't ever taken the typical myspace mirror pic, so I decided I'd give it a try.[​IMG]
    i like it but im not sure if its too yellow or whether or not the composition is good. lemme know what you think!

    p.s. it was taken with my sony P&S.

    wow I do like it! I like tha angleand the colours. Also framing and an idea is great! The only think that bother's me is a lamp. hmmm maybe you'll try setting an apperture on something like f8 or smaller (f16) to get some kind of "star effect"

    Yah I think it looks better without the lamps. Hehe, Ah myspace...them and their mirror pics *shakes head*
    Very cute idea, very clever. I like the gold theme.
    Actually now that I think about it, it seems a little barron without the lamps. I dunno. Maybe if something else were in the background. Eh, good pic either way.

    All the elements are there. Some how the lamp adds to the photo.

    I think it is a little wide. I would try and shoot from far away and zoom in. This may compress the image a little more. I like the yellow feel, but I would like to see a little stronger separation of tones. In Photoshop: convert to CMYK and adjust each channel separately in levels.

    I disagree, I like it much better without the lamp. (But maybe it's 'cause I just hate that style of lamp- my bf has one and he refuses to get rid of it haha)

    The absence of the light really makes the photo have a very M.C. Escher feel. I'm sure why I like this pic, But I do. It just draws me in.
