Was hoping you would have placed better. Underated in my eyes.

This was one of my many favorites. I wish this would have scored a little better. Still good place though!

Very nice composition, very good idea, and execution... If you had your face sharp and clear, with more contrast and rest of the scene like your face here, not too sharp, and maybe dimmed a bit, this photo would be a lot better in my opinion. Good job overall :)

Nice composition for me on this one--lovely mood to this. One of my faves of this challenge.

Great composition and concept.

Hmmm, nice idea, but I see a portrait with a face wanting. It really hurts to strugle to find the face. I don't mind not having a face in portraits at all, but everything in this photo is leading me there, but there I can't find it. Anyhow, a good playful and lovely take.

I would have preferred a closer crop and I like to see the face when it's a self portrait.
The editing is good and the photo is interesting.

This almost feels like a 'high key' image with the bright light on your arms and face. Good use of secondary light use. BB

PS. I mean 'seconday' in that it's not the main on camera flash.

I adore the mutuated colours here! Stunning, I love the scenery you chose, and having the umbrella (ella ella eh eh eh) on the shot was a very nice touch... the emptyness of the background gives a simplicity to the shot I think very nice and a 9 =)

Beautiful execution of this photo. I love everything about it except for your head being oof.

I love the rocky path leading to who knows what that is. Great PP, great image.

Nice processing and placement. I would have liked a little more details. Still a good capture.8.

very nice use of flash
very nice composition with the road
very nice dodging/burning of the road
--makes your subject really look isolated

Huh. Interesting composition. Not quite sure what it says about you, standing in the middle of nowhere with an umbrella ... almost looks like you're waiting for the wind to pick you up a la Mary Poppins ... or lightning to strike.

wish I lived near minimalist locales like this

Another one where I'd love to see the original and then get a step by step on how you achieved the photo. Nice job. 10

Oh how fun! Doesn't really look like its storming but the texture in the sky and the road are really neat, good lighting too
