I've never been a fan of blown out shots, but you pulled it off admirably! Congrats on a great shot.

I actually like how this is blown out. Nice use of B&W. Good luck.

I love the blown out look. I wanted to try this but couldn't figure out how. Maybe you could give me some tips. ;-) Good luck.

Great portrait. I would have called it "Zoned Out". The way it blends into nothingness.

Oh I really like how this is washed out but at the same time very clear and sharp! Great work, really makes your features pop off the screen!

Nice high-key effect and good use of negative space.

absolutely LOVE the high key. This is a technique I would really like to learn. Great selfportrait.

Very nice. Different to see a high key shot in here among all the low key ones. I think this is very well done. You didnt over do it, and you were still able to keep recognizable features. I like the angle and framing/cropping you chose very much. good use of negative space. Nice to meet you. ~Heather~

The overexposure works well here.

This is the photo I've been waiting for. Only giving one photo a perfect 10 and this is it. Can't fault it in anyway. I'll be very very suprised if you don't get a ribbon for this one

I like the high key and the way your head merges with the negative space on the left. Even with the high key brightness, you've managed to capture alot of detail in your face. Well done.

Very cool the way the white background blends into the face. Maybe could use a little more dark tones, but still very good.

The intense light and lack of definition of the forehead really do suggest dreaming. Nice work!

This is one of my favorites. I like the contrast you used to many of the standard black and white shots where black is the dominant color. You did the exact opposite and it is quite a nice effect.

Great focus. I like the bleached out parts fading into the background. The only thing I'd like to see is a perfect black somewhere in the pic. If you have Photoshop go to Image - Adjustment - Level and move the left of the 3 triangles to the right. It'll deepen the darks.

very nice use of high key, it works in just the right place of this photo, leaving your eyes like it should be.
