This self portrait inspired by the recent snow storm in the Western New York area where I live. Needless to say, I was freezing while taking this, but worth it to make art!

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A pleasing portrait that contributes to the open challenge.

Brr… you look cold! You have got nice sharp focus on the eyes and although your eyes are a lovely blue they add to the sense of cold! You must have been cold, you have captured the snowflakes on your skin before they had chance to melt!

Your expressionless face sort of adds to the overall coolness you are trying to create but perhaps more of a grimace would have helped inject a bit more emphasis of the freezing conditions you wanted to convey. The background helps convey the snowy surroundings without being blown there is still a little detail there, well done.

Nicely done, thanks for your submission and apologies for the delayed critique, as they say, 'better late than never', or at least I hope it is, Sid

I can't look away. This says something about art, the impersonality of aesthetics

Well that just doesn't look fun.
Good detail, especially in the eyes.
