    I am not sure if it is my screen (i have been having troubles with such) but the whole shot seems grainy and soft.

    As for the composition, I would have liked perhaps less person and a slightly closer zoom on the reflection. But that is just my opinion.

    yeah, it does look a little soft. it'd be nice to be able to tell what she's doing, as well.

    I like the softness too. The concept is nice too.

    There are a few other things I'm picky about but they're all just personal thoughts.

    Good stuff :)

    thanks for your comments.

    I made post treatments to have this soft and grainy aspect. It was made intentionaly, but I understand any of you don't like it ;-)

    About what she is doing : just look in a case of make-up.

    Ya i agree, the grainy soft look, gives it the image a feel of innocence

    I think the grain and softness add a lot to the atmosphere. I think you did a good job balancing the composition between the body and the reflection in the mirror.

    Normally I'm pretty bored by nudes, but I really like this image. Probably because it seems to come from a more documentary point of view than a f'art (my abbreviation for fine art) point of view It's out of real life.

    I like the grain and softness and mystery of the pic.

    Dude. Looks like the "what is she doing thing" is going for you.
    My wife and I both liked the photo. Actually I thought the use of B/W was a good one. And the soft feel to the photo was good. Did you modify it however?

    It's nice. I like the calmness: a lot of nude stuff, even the "unposed" or "spontanious" kind, has a self-conscious feel to it, but this seems very relaxed. Like a candid shot sort of, except the model's aware of being photographed, and doesn't really seem to mind/care.

    The style has a very Robert Farber look to it. It also kind of makes me think of photos from the 1800s/early 1900s.
