Shutter: 60

Taken in my dining room with a 500 watt lamp toasting my face.... increased contrast, dropped brightness, and dropped the saturation.
Cropped a bit too.
This was done at the last minute because I couldn't bear not to enter something.... I don't like this image that much, it's not that great.... but hey, it's me....

Great shot, especially with the lighting - but I think this would have worked better if you had of either trimmed off a few cm from the top, so that your eyes and lips matched the "rule of thirds" idea. If you make this into a square shape, I think you'll see what I mean. Either that or I would have not trimmed the shot off so close to your chin - it just feels a bit unbalanced or "top heavy" as it is

I like the simplicity of it, and the fact that the light doesn't feel artificial.

What a great effect. That shadow on the right blends perfectly into the darkness.

cool shot! I like how I can see all the details on your face. The lighting is very dramatic and makes this a great shot. Good luck!

I enjoy how you've captured only one side of the face without the light being too harsh. NIce!

nice tonal contrast, great texture on the skin. maybe a 1/2, 1/2 composition was a little banal . . .

I've just commented on the same lighting as this one but this is more sharer in detail. Cool shot

You look like an actor whose name I cannot recall at this time. The picture is worthy of an actor anyway, so I guess it doesn't matter. (8)

Great focus. I really love the lighting. Like how it divides your face. I like how you chose to go color for this. Great coloring and tones. Also really great detail. Wonderful textures. nothing to complain about here. :) ~Heather~
