This image here is the photographic representation of "Rubin's Vase" which is a well-known example of "negative space" (more specifically is an example of figure-ground reversal). On the following link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negative_space ,you read that "...Negative space, in art, is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image... (it) can be used to depict a subject in a chosen medium by showing everything around the subject but not the subject itself...". To fulfill at the best the challenges rules, I even put the light source (blurred lamp) and the faces in two different planes. It is obvious that nothing is perfect (and this image is far from being perfect) so any criticism and advice is well accepted. Sadly some of you suspected that this photo was not fulfilling the rules... Anyway, I must be grateful to Patty Capps and amitabhkumar for some useful suggestions!
