Challenge: Self Portrait VI (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Location: bedroom
Date: Dec 3, 2007
Aperture: f/3.2
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/50
Galleries: Black and White, Self Portrait
Date Uploaded: Dec 4, 2007

This was a quick and simple shot of me looking into a mirror at a 45 degree angle. All post-processing steps were legal in Basic Editing, let alone Advanced.

Here's the original (rotated 90 degrees and resized):
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/35321/120/621894.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/35321/120/621894.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Thanks everyone for the comments!

Wow. How'd you do that? I've done my share of multiple personality shots in one click, but always against a black background without the various views overlapping. Please share your technique!

Wish there was a little bit of a highlight on the center eye, but still a good shot.

I had two other similar to your photo. And I suggested them to either focus on both faces or make one face blur much more than they did. This is what I was looking for. Very nice. Excellent for this kind :)

Good, a honest presentation, and a full one at that, of one's portrait.

This is nice work, and it's good to see others joining me in the "show no mercy" school of self portraiture, LOL.

I really like how you have composed this shot and the lighting is fairly nice. I would have liked to seen a little more sparkle in your eyes. That's a girl for ya though. Nice job!

Wow. I imagine this must've been fairly difficult to execute. You did a tremendous job.

I like the idea behind you SP, I think the B&W works well and you got the bad ass look down. Nice work.

Nice lighting brings out the skin and stubble texture.

Wow, what a great SP!!! Bizarrely in some ways it reminds me of an old ABBA video!!!

Love the sharpness both of and between the two faces. Great B&W conversion, super sharpness and great composition
