This is another self portrait. I'm realizing that all of my ideas include ME behind AND in front of the camera. A HAM perhaps?

Anyway, this is me experimenting with light. I like the way it turned out, although I don't know what voters will think. My goal is to score above a 5.7!

Interesting lighting and background/skin tone blending. Wish the DOF was a little deeper so my eye didn't hunt for the focal point (fingers). Overall like it!

Great composition. I think it would make a great B/W photo with a lot of contrast. Just an idea.

Interesting composition and lighting, but I think it would work much better in BW. Don't care too much for the "fleshy" wall color.

Good lighting and I like the shapes formed. I might like to see it with a more contrasting background color.

I really like the even colour in this...the composition is great...it lacks sharpness, but perhaps that's a good thing for a softer effect

A different look at simplicity, and like the colors....
