  • Wow...and I really mean wow. This is exceptional. The self portrait is most creative. Love how you have the mailbox included not to mention the structure in the reflection. However, the real structure with the flags framed in there as they are is just perfect. Like I said, wow.

  • I love reflections. This one is so cool!
    The mirror offers a lot from the background. A great self portrait!

  • Nicely done…

  • Not really.

    This isn't a horrible photo, I don't think, but the processing is piss poor. May re-do it.

    Ed. -- Well I tried re-doing it, but what you see here actually took a long time to do because of exposure problems. Thing is, I didn't take my time on it and you can clearly see where I cut corners when layer masking. This is not much more than a snap shot. I do think a more intimate crop would be in order (4:5) but I'm not going to go to the trouble.

  • Because of the contrast in graininess and sharpness between two parts of the image, and the fact that there are two different subjects portrayed here (two parts of the street, essentially), to me this looks like two different images, where the foreground one has invaded an ordinary cityscape photo, as if to say: that's not interesting, just buildings and stuff, look at me! :D
    As self-portraits go, I think it's rather good.

  • ah, a face to the name! Did you try a mono conversion? I know you'd loose the colour in the building etc. but I just thought it might work well.

  • Nice to see you, Dustin.

    Here we have finally spring.

  • WOW! Fantastic reflection. Have no idea how you captured the close-up/portrait..and the tall building all in one frame. WOW!

  • I hear you with finding a balance in terms of shooting. I've been crippled by my own internal debate about posting lately. As self-portraits go, as your views are much like mine, this is strong. In my opinion it avoids self-indulgence and captures you in your element. Appropriate rather than narcissistic.

  • nice reflection of yourself here. it is very creative.
    Liang @ 2009-04-10 15:53:30
  • I really like the concept her and how you composed it with the buildings in the mirror leading into the one in the background. And then, as a little surprise, there's you down in the corner. However, the sky really isn't doing it for me.

  • Great self-portrait shot, you looks so serious though. Didn't realize you were from Texas. Should have known with all the great architecture. I know the feeling, when I look back at some of my old photos and realize all the things I would do different now. That's a good thing in a way, we must be improving over time or else fooling ourselves. Really a good image here.

  • Great creative selfportrait, and I agree with John... life is to keep learning things, evolving.
    Ivar @ 2009-04-11 07:54:56
  • Heh, nice self-portrait. Clever.

    Love the sharpness of the building. Would like to see a pic of that on its own as well.
    Tom @ 2009-04-12 07:07:07
  • Nice to see you :)
    alex @ 2009-04-13 04:28:33
  • Hello Dustin ;)
    You got THE pov, excellent play between buildings, but the eyse always come back to your face.

  • very nice self-portrait
    BoB @ 2009-04-14 04:28:39
  • Brilliant composition! The varying focus and strong detail and colour in the background gives the frame such a cool energy! Clever shot!
    bluechameleon @ 2009-04-16 21:59:15
  • Very happy to be your knowledge Dustin. Always difficult for a photographer to take pictures ..
    Fabrice @ 2009-04-17 08:24:02
  • HA! I see you found the photo! Funny how photographers do that odd, claw grip on their cameras when taking these kind of "shoot from the hip" shots. I don't think it's such a horrible shot, I like how the arc of the mirror cuts across the bottom of the photo.

  • I seriously love your blog.. Excellent colors & theme.
    Did you build this site yourself? Please reply back as I'm hoping to
    create my very own site and would love to learn where you got this from or just what the theme is called.

    Appreciate it!
