I like taking pictures in everyday situations, like for example shaving in this one. I'm not usually a fan of b&w but I think it works quite well with this one. Image

this one was taken in a small chapel during a service for a 60-year wedding anniversary (is there an english word for that? in german we say "Diamanthochzeit" - Diamond wedding)

Nice shots, personally I like the first one the most, the B&W looks really nice, and the composition with the mirror was great. Good job :)

The first one is a good picture indeed. Composition works well, you create some depth like this. It's a shame the edge in between the mirrors (?) cuts across the face of your subject. Second shot isn't very interesting, since there isn't much to look at. If you show someone's back, there should be a gesture of some sort that makes it special, or perhaps something in front of them they might be looking at. Like this, it just doesn't tell any story.

Yeah, it's the edge between the mirrors, thank you anyway, though :) With the other one I see what you're getting at, what makes it so special for me probably has to do a lot with the situation around it, which someone only seeing the picture obviously doesn't know anything about. And thank you for sharing your thoughts, it'S much more helpful than just being told "nice pic" or anything like that!
