I used the sunset to light up my face (yes I used myself again).
Post processing wasn't much to begin with, almost only convertion from RAW cause at first I thought that I had to follow the basic editing. Then I found out otherwise and decided to use curves to change the colours a bit. I also used gaussian blur + soft light, desaturated and used USM for contrast.

Nice self portrait. Is the slight magenta cast deliberate?
