Guess who got yours. What do I say about yours? The focus is good the lighting works well for this, leaving mild shadows where needed. That one strand of hair adds such a statement to the photo, but at the same time that is where your problem is. As I sit here I notice it looks slightly soft at the end and I can decide if it is fanning out slightly of if the focus is off on it. Whichever it is it does pull the eye to it.

Over all I thing this is a very beautiful self portrait and well done.

Great expression, the wisp of hair works and adds visual interest.

Nice, simple, sweet. I like the space on the left side that keeps your face from being overpowering or overpowered - a nice balance there - and the strand of hair hanging down over your face makes the picture, in many ways. Beautiful.

Nice pic, without the strand of hair it would be less (if that makes any sense?)

The bottom of the picture seems a bit strange to me cause it looks like your chin extends into your shoulder without much seperation.

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.

Lighting: good


Creativity: not much

Composition: good

Background: good

Lovely expression. The strand of hair down your face does so much for this pic. The lighting is spot on and the B&W works.
