[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at 'El Raval' neighborhood in Barcelona, near MACBA (Museu d'Art Contemporari de BArcelona).

There was a mirror in a facade, nicely framed in red and gray so Bess and me tried shooting ourselves using it.
We liked the composition so I decided to post it to get some feedback from TrekLens-ers...

Shot in RAW, ISO-200, 88mm FL. Jpegged, resized and posted after sharpening.

Hola Bess y te.
Es muy original y divertido. Muy buena idea

Very smart idea Galder.
I like this mirror frame, the pov chosen and the inscriptions on the wall give a more artistic and graphic that goes very well with the atmosphere "walk to town. "
Artistic and fun mOOd.
Excellent result with a great balance.

Best regards

Good to see you and your girlfriend, Galder :-)

Great idea and perfect positioning within a natural vertical frame.
The sharpness and DOF are well done.
Thanks for sharing such a light moment.

Best regards,

Boa tarde Galder,

Composição diferente, muito bem elaborada, com cores fortes e belas, sem dúvida um excelente trabalho!
Parabéns e um grande abraço,

Hello Galder,

very interesting and creative shot. I like the colours and textures captured. I might have flipped the image around so that the writing on your shirt and wall read the right way, but perhaps that adds to the jarring composition.

She is all eyes for you Galder , somehow it is correct that she wasn't looking straight at the mirror , kind of less posed, pre-set this way , more candid although it is not but i like how it turns out here with you leaning in and both of you standing at the corner rather than using a central location for your shoot , that probably is a good point to show some space , Jan is right , flip the image and you get the writing on the wall in correct order: " La France aux connards " , not a bad shot i reckon , thanks for sharing,

Hola amigo! Nice to almost meet you ;-0

I like the idea, it's a sharp photo and the composition is thoughtful! Good shot here!

Hello Galder,

Well composed and a fresh photograph with tasteful originality!
I love entire color combination with red, gray and thin brown, and it is interesting to take this photograph in the mirror, and the idea is novel. So, it is a photograph where some creativity is written up. And, projection of two people that is reflected under frame draws out a interesting effect, I think.
A work with good sense.
