That's pretty cool. You could flip the image horizontally and make all the words read correctly, but I don't know if that would add to take away from the shot.
Didn't even think of the lettering on my shirt. Nice observation. Thanks!

Interesting shot. I'm not too keen on the huge OOF camera lens on the right - it grabs my attention over everything else - I'm not sure how you could avoid that given the difficulty of the shot. Perhaps experiment with the camera on a tripod instead?
Is there a reason for the purply color tone, or am I missing some crucial concept?
I briefly toyed with the idea of trying to crop out the lens on the right...ultimately left it. Something I may revisit. And no, no reason in particular for the purply tone. I've just been on a split tone kick, lately...and the split tones are definitely more interesting than the original. Thanks for the feedback!
Thanks Flo. I definitely had some fun in the first go around. I knew a dated 70s-style bathroom was good for something!

Good concept and execution. Nothing in particular I'd want changed, though having the one sharp eye partially covered by the lens is slightly frustrating
. A variant might be to put a subject into the shot. Something slim and long so it doesn't dominate overly - like a long-stemmed flower in the middle. Then, it becomes about taking a shot of that rather than a strange self portrait...?
Interesting thought, definitely worth looking into. Thanks, Tony!
