Since we are stuck indoors and not much to do but play, I figured I would grab the camera and have some fun. All C&C welcomed! I get mucus wiped on me so trust me... I can take it ;)

Great use of the reflection. My only concern is that the mirror has captured warts 'n all and has made some compositions a little too busy.

Thanks Corkneyfonz. Should I do a closer crop on 4 & 5 to take some of the distraction away?

I thought about it initially and I wanted to crop. However, you don't want to go in too hard and lose the point of the image, ie it being a reflection.

yeah, I was thinking without actually seeing the frame on the mirror, its just another picture.... IDK. so I did the black and white with the reflection being in color to help minimize some of the extra. Thanks again corkneyfonz, I always appreciate the critiques :)

Lettie, the mirror was clean before my son and daughter had some fun on it ;-)a I am still trying to figure out what that spot is.... I noticed it after I posted... Will definitely have another go at it. Thanks!

I think the rotation suits better here?

Thank you both for the edits! I always like seeing what others do with the pics. I like how you both brought her out more in the mirror. Makes you notice her more. Albertonman, I didn't think of flipping the crop on the 2nd one. Thanks for putting that in there. Both nice edits! Thanks!

LOL I figured they were probably just fingerprints. You should be able to just clone it out. I should have mentioned I thought you have very cute kids and the photos are nice too. :)
