Since I was forced to take a self portrait for the Fine Arts: Exhibit III challenge, I decided to walk this path a bit more often. After all, which model is always available? indeed: myself.
I wanted to do one with an OSB board as an overlay since a few weeks, but since this was not accepted under Advanced Editing, I kept this project aside.
Imagine my surprise when the Self Portrait VIII challenge was announced under Expert Editing.
Yes! I could do my OSB-portrait thing!

I like the shot but does it portray a tortured soul or am I reading too much into it?

An interesting choice of overlay - the overall effect is a dreamlike state where the dream is not quite comfortable.

great choice of muted tones and obfuscation.

nice use of texture, but the framing feels too confined.
