Thanks Robert. As to what I look like, well, I'm not really crazy about this self-portrait honestly. It fit the challenge but I feel like I look like an old, sad, sour-puss in this capture. :-} I didn't even share it with my family. When I did show it to my wife she was like, oh, not a very flattering image. LOL I am happy that it scored well though. :-D

Great lighting and an excellent shot. You look pensive and most definitely not like a sour-puss.

Regardless of how you feel about how it makes you feel, it is a very strong and very emotional portrait. It almost sums up the global feeling about this year, 2020. Hopefully we can all visit with our family members very soon.


I really agree with what Dennis said I gave you a nine.

sober. sober light, sober colour, sober visage. we are allowed not to look all smiley and engaging... I favour the contemplative.

Nicely done. Amount of light on different parts of the face are just right - highlighting the expression, but almost hiding the ears. About the only thing distracting is the hoodie fold along the model-right neck, and that is minor (I think it is the light blue color.) Great detail.
