Took a picture of myself with a purple feather fan and a purple background in the utility room. My mom held a lamp to try and remove any shadows. My skin tone doesn't seem right but unsure of how to fix in photoshop. The only thing I did in photoshop was crop, resize and save for web.

You've the three primary colors here in spiraling circles... except the blue phases to purple, the yellow is orangey, the red is pinky... we see here some kind of intriguing intersection between purity and corruption. This would have been great for faceless portrait! Except that on this site, such a stunning picture will score low. Always. Not in spite of its art, but because of it. 9

Hmmm? That's a different color choice for the background. Looks like you're kinda focused on 'ME' a little too much. I thought this was about the 'Purple'? Anyway, thanks for something different...Hooray for not flowers!

Nice pose...but why not purple lipstick?

Also...too much blank space to the left.

Nice try. JMO, but I think the fan should have been in focus, not you.

Beautiful composition and color combination. Looks like lips are the focus and because of this the feathers were soft. A brighter lighting source may have helped bring out this lovely image.

Love the composition of this photo. The feathers could use a bit more focus. Great job.
