A missed focus?
Why is the focus not on the girl but on the blue glass?
Working with 50mm can sometimes be difficult, but can also result in a weird focus point.
Taken in Pergamonmusem Berlin

I think the focal point works for me personally. It creates an other-worldly presence, where she is part of the world rather than focus of it. This seems eternal, etherial, artifical and dream-like. A masterful shot in my opinion. Great shot.

The automatic focus is on the mirror, and the blue glass close to it, and not on the girl who is far away from it! Your diaphragm is wide open 1.8!, that means that the depth of field (space where the picture is sharp) is very shallow. So you get this picture!
But I like the mood you have, with a dreamy atmosphere and some colored dots.

Fantastique compo, quelle iamge, ce reflet, cette profondeur qui se perd dans le flou, ce belle couleur des flacons, splendide.
Bravo et amitié

I remember the first time I visited the Pergamonmuseum - right after unification, the ticket still cost 50 Pfennig... I was amazed by the sheer range of the exhibits and masterpieces... what a place.
I agree with you on the trickiness of the 50mm - it's such a sensitive lens, the focus is volatile and one has to pay a lot of attention. but in this case, even if your intention was probably to focus on the girl, I don't know if the shift is really detrimental to the picture... I personally quite like the attention drawn to the little bottles :)

A big secret in this picture. I don´t see the Pergammon museum. There is something different, mote about rituals and relics. BW, Frank

Very exquisite, almost "feminine".
But if I were you, I chose rather 2,4 and 1/400.
But maybe is more interesting and more pictural like that ?
Best regards. Grazyna.
