Dark vs Light

This is an idea using a dark mirror, it is a work in progress, but I am interested in your reactions.

Re: Dark vs Light

I'm not sure if it works either - but I'm not familiar with this Dark Mirror idea.

Probably better if you can post to the gallery and then insert the pictures - that way we see the images at a better size for old eyes.

Re: Dark vs Light

I'm not sure it does much as a picture, especially if you're hoping for contrast between the two images. The one on the left is darker but also less sharp. I think it's worth working on though, developing the idea.

I tried to put a larger image for you to see properly, but I kept gettting the message that I was still too big. This is the biggest I can upload.

Ellie, a dark mirror is a piece of black, smoked glass such as car windows, the idea is that the image appears to be within the mirror instead of just a reflection, and therefore should not be as sharp as the light image.

Any tips on how to get a bigger image on would be gratefully recieved.
