I like the concept but agree with the comments above about it being flat, white balance off and it's very soft overall.

I'd love to see it re-shot to address these things.

I think this is a marvelous concept that just misses the mark due to some technical issues. I hope you won't mind but I did a little tweaking to see if I could neutralize some of the color cast. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do much with the crushed blacks. Perhaps someone with better Photoshop skills than I can help some too.

Cool idea, but I think I would like it better if the mirror was on the wall rather than looking like it's floating in mid air.
