“Reflection” definitely has a good composition balance and not as cluttered as some of the others.  Don’t forget the DJ mission tag.  If you wanted to be creative,  you could consider a version of the same image to have a glimpse of the daughter mostly hidden but peering out frightened from his left side,  protected by his left arm or have her reflected in the reflection only.

Wow, it’s an honor for you to critique my images. I think I just bought one of your items a week ago (it was lunar Crator moonscape)..

You are right about adding the daughter as a background image in the reflection. I was planning a scene with a more emotional element like this anyway. This is just a simple scene that I wanted to do just to focus on DJ as a double reflection, DJs inner reflection and DJs reflection in the glass. Are you planning to submit an image for the contest?

Okay…the poll is up and running. Ran into a slight problem, only allowed 12 entries for the poll. I ended up with 17 entries total. Many thanks to all who entered. In order to make the polls work, I cut 5 submissions that I didnt like or couldnt see using as my cover design. Sorry if I cut yours but thanks for entering.

Now comes the voting. Spread the word. I know I will. Good luck to all.

When does the voting period end?

Originally scheduled for Wednesday but with the problems setting up the polls, I will be extending it until Thursday.
