Side View

Mirror by Sylvia Plath

I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.

Whatever I see, I swallow immediately.

Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike

I am not cruel, only truthful –

The eye of a little god, four-cornered.

  15. So symbolic!

  16. The Sylvia Plath poem is so perfectly paired with this image. Love how you’ve seen and captured this. So simple..and so good!

  17. What a great composition. Layers of spaces. I also like the muted tones. Very cool, I collect it.

  18. cracking shot Elaine! Love the processing

  19. Nice shot, really like all the different elements you have gotten in this shot. Did you have to drive around a bit to capture only one car in the mirror?Great tones too.As usual lovely processing, well done

  20. Super. I like the processing which adds really interest to this fine image.

  21. getting quite creative in the framing department.. πŸ™‚ i like the selective focus and the processing too.. this looks cool! great shot! πŸ™‚

  22. Interesting that this should carry two different perspectives (counting the frame of the mirror as a second) without a human subject. But there’s a wonderful presence here, of *being*. In a way it reminds me of the first-person shooter videogames, Half Life and F.E.A.R. You, the photographer aren’t visible – despite referencing yourself – yet your presence is very much there. I like this alot, it makes great cinema, I think, if that isn’t too pretentious. πŸ™‚

  23. Great shot! Like mysterious reflexion, well composed. SwissCharles

  24. Interesting atmosphere! Because of the tones it makes me think the photo taker is a detective from an old movie and is on a stakeout!

  25. Did you shoot this one with your new camera? I’m guessing you did. The pastel hues are fantastic. I especially like the pink around the bridge.:-)

  26. WOW what an interesting capture, so many different things to see different perspectives as well, this is so cool

  27. Awesome shot Elaine!! But I bet there is someone asleep in that car. πŸ™‚

  28. I love the color, the framing, and the tones. Great work

  29. It’s easy to get lost here.. – excellent concept and fine toning – so, let’s get lost πŸ˜‰

  30. I love this metllic bronze/gray color, it’s a nice concept.

  31. such clarity… the busy foreground goes well with the simple reflection…

  32. Don’t watch too much “Cheaters”.

  33. great “hdr” Effect and color tones!I like it a lot!

  34. Well spotted! You just never know what you’ll see looking behind – do you?

  35. Very cool. πŸ™‚

  36. Lovely shot, nice idea, the tones are outstanding. Love the processing πŸ™‚

  37. I love your creativity on this shot. Goes to show how much a rearview mirror can do =)

  38. great framing and postprocessing

  39. Wonderfull post processing work .. What pp do you use?

  40. Way cool photo. Kind of has a spy feeling, doesn’t it?

So... What do ya think?
