did an engagement shoot yesterday. Got carried away and spent 4 hours having way too much fun with ideas. This was the 1st idea which I came up with just before the shoot. I think if my subjects were better actors it could have turned out better, but it worked out well enough to earn me a few bucks since they purchased an enlargement. :)

Interesting choice of clothing for an engagement shoot, by the way....

Very interesting clothing for an engagement shoot as said above.

Did you photoshop his reflection from another pic w/ her or was he really inside?

Great idea!

they were actually back-to-back, and he was not inside. The rest can be credited to photoshop :)

regarding clothing, they dressed themselves. They wanted casual to match their personalities.

Nice job but it looks too real and your photoshop skills won't get any credit from anyone other than the couple (which is what counts I suppose).

Most people will just think he was standing inside. That was my first take on the pic and I wondered what the "concept" was.

fixed.

my wife agrees with the higher window reflectivity that the illusion is more convincing.

Can't see inside the building one bit? He must be outside? - that should now be the initial impression, i hope.

I actually got an eerie feeling from the picture. It looks like a ghost in the reflection.

HAHAHA .... yeah, like i said, their posing left much to be desired. I asked for a longingness in their expression. Instead I got, "I'm not really sure what I'm doing". The blank look is quite life-less.
