Excellent shots. The second is definitely sharper. You have done very well with the exposure. I would consider this a low-key shot The visor and the reflections are very dark. This could cause the automatic metering in a camera to overexpose the shot. I am guessing you either used manual exposure or about -1.0 EV compensation.

This would be a good candidate for a low-key challenge if/when it is done again.

Cal, both shots are actualy the same one. Only I somhow mucked up when I resized down for posting, so I redid it.

The visor is a very dark one, my S5000 was set on auto.

Excellent job and yes as we all agree the second version is better. Love the composition of the reflections, they are just random images -- at least I hope not.... otherwise there goes my accolades.

Aloha

I could say that I spent ages geting the reflected images right, but i would only be fooling myself.
