Underrated, Jimmy! :( That background reminds me of a nightmare involving an endless game of "Connect Four". LOL

Trippy, edgy, well done!

Oh man! I thought this one was going to be on the front page! I love that background -- and the handsome face to compliment it :)

Great job!

This hits you right between the eyes when it opens up. Other than a bit over-exposed on the face, good shot.

Great complementary colors. A little too glossy... The eyes are a bit over sharpened for this resolution.

The blue is a little crazy, but goes good with the eyes.

Hey Jimmy - I do so love those baby blues of yours!! Great job of really making them stand out in this shot. And *almost* a smile. :-)

Your eyes are stunning, I like the background you chose, it portrays someone who takes risks. Do you?? BWG..

Fascinating eyes. Are they normally like this or is it just this shot? Captivating portrait.

I guess the background is sort of the point of this picture, but I find it distracting from a nice portrait. Nice eyes, btw!

Interesting self portrait. Background colors go well with the eye color. I can't help but feel you should be moved more to the right or left. Really couldn't tell you which side would be better.
