Oliver, Great work. What a fantastic shot (you'd make a good actor ;-).
Sorry you didn't make top 10, but 11 is super too. Congrats.

Oliver, really nice range of tones and colours here - all offset beautifully by the brightness and colour of the eye.

Good finish - good photo :- )

Oliver - Fabulous stuff here - congrats on the new camera and a series of incredible photos with it to come (I can't wait to see what you will do next).

One of my few 10s in the challenge. Such a fantastic capture, with such story in the hands and eyes.

Great expression and composition. Not sure what it means, but it certainly expresses who you are, which is the whole point of self portraits. 10

This is really interesting. You almost make me think of Puck in a Midsummer Night's Dream, just without the pointed ears. You are quite impish with all of your dirt. COOL
