Black or Copper Patina?

How do you photograph a mirror without getting your own reflection in it??? The mirrored tulips are finally ready for patina and now I can’t decide on black or copper. David, my stained glass instructor, mentioned I should think about copper patina. I hadn’t even considered it, but am thinking that would really add to this piece.

All the soldered lines will be patinaed and I intend to have this piece framed in a wood frame for hanging on a wall instead of in a window. What do you think? Black or copper?
