I've tried to do the reflections thing before. I don't think it's worked in the past, but it does here, providing an excuse for a King James Bible quotation (almost the last bit of I Corinthians 13, in case you're interested: St Paul's hymn to love, faith and hope, which is always more of a poem in the older translation. Newer tranlations render my title as "dimly in a mirror", even though they make it clear that "charity" means "love").

Anyway, enjoy the picture, even if you don't look up the source... Though the source will bear longer contemplation, even longer than Caperucita Roja!

This one works quite well, indeed! If I may suggest a tiny modification, one of the reflected colours falls right on the subject's left eye. If it were possible to move it above, the subject's gaze would be more forceful. As the image stands now, only one eye catches the viewer and so the other, a green eye, looks a bit odd. Otherwise nice try and tanks for the beautiful lines quoted. Regards,
Paul

A very haunting image John - the beautiful girl trapped behind the glass looking out into a beautiful paradise which she will never enter. Lovely composition and superb reflection, I don't mind the green in the eye it gives the image a little mystery to the girls features.

For me, part of the aim was that the girl was largely obscured...

I did a number of otehr shots inside the summerhouse which show her clearly. Here, it was the layering of images I wanted.

This doesn't invalidate other interpretations - or even mean I was right: but it was what I was trying to do...
