Nice self-portrait! Blue and silver really suit you well. I like the smile. ~7

I like the expression -- looks like you're in conversation with someone. It's a little snapshotty, the lighting and background look kind of unremarkable, but it's overall a clean shot.

Good lighting and capture of the character in your face. I'm impressed that you were able to elminate so much reflection from your glasses. That's the hardest part of taking a photo of anyone who wears them (I know. You rarely see my eyes in most pictures of myself! LOL!). I appreciate that you were able to reduce this problem while taking the picture yourself.

Hello DPCer,
Good to meet you. This is a nice crisp shot, but it seems lacking the wow factor that some photos have. Maybe a different background may have added you your photo.

What a lovely portrait :) I like the lighting on the left hand side. I think if you'd managed to keep it even through the whole shot, like on the left, it would have worked a bit better. The right seems a bit blown out. Great colours.

I think a portrait should reveal some character, or emotion of the model, by showing expression in eyes or other facial features. Did your picture accomplish that? YES!!! Great expression, and clear view of eyes.

Lighting: Good

Exposure:good

Focus: Good

Creativity:fair

Composition:good

Background:fair Slightly distracting.
Your expression compensates for the bg. Good job!!! 7
