One of my ideas for the green challenge. The other one was my green panther (a toy, of course), but couldn't get it right.
So anyway, this is what I got. The background is a green drawer I have in my room, and the three leaves are from my yucca plant (felt really bad about ripping them off).
So criticism, well, I guess I'll get kicked off for not showing the mouth. I thought of that. I redid the picture with the mouth in, but wasn't very happy with it...
I like the feeling I have with this one, like "proud of who I am"....I might be biased (self portrait...again! :-)))

Played with levels, color balance and unsharp mask.

Hope you enjoy it!

The cropping at the top could have been a bit more, cropping just above the chin does not keep me too comfortable

Great composition and idea. Don't care for the background graininess. Has great potential - IMO it needs some more processing - and I'd consider deepening the greens.

This is cool. I think the idea is very good - nice composition. In my humble opinion this would score a little better with softer lighting to give it a slightly shadowy feel and I'd like a more gold/amber/yellowy back drop. Nice job.
