the argument

By forilion  
a couple were having an argument on the table behind me. I saw them in the mirror which just visulised the distance between them at that moment...

This works for me on many levels.

The fact that you've captured them both in different mirrors is pure art. They are obviously not seeing eye to eye and feel completely separated, i.e. in differnet places (your mirrors).

I like the fact that you've also left in the two frames above to compliment the two below.

Well done.

Welcome to ePz Paul. What an excellent way to start your portfolio. Well done for spotting the opportunity and doing such a good job of capturing the moment and mood. The separation across the mirrors tells the story perfectly.

what an great eye!!!
well spotted - image's don't reflect this (excuse the pun) but if you can get hold of a copy of Mirrors and Windows by John Szarkowski then it would be well worth it (if you haven't already of course). Hopefully you'll see what I mean once you've looked at it, the realists etc
