Ah, hi there! :) Nice shot, more like something you'd see in an artsy book than a fashion magazine. As you know by now from me, that's a good thing.

Didn't even recognise you and I still LOVED IT and rated it high - I think this is an awesome portrait, let alone 'self' portrait!

Your bg looks like a giant canvas painting, nice job. I wish your hair and hand weren't quite so bright. I like how your arms are laying across your knees. BB

Lesley? The acid green goes well with the stare and pissed off look. Well done!

I think this picture sums up your personality and your passion for what you do.

Nice. Although it's not focused, still is a good photo. What makes it good is the background, and the color selection :) nice lighting, good composition :) God job :)

Interesting use of the green overlay. Looks a bit OOF, not sure if you intended to do that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2007 10:10:18 AM
Very cool looking. It looks like you are in a dongon or a sewer or something
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2007 06:40:24 PM
very gritty....the background looks almost surrealistic...nice job...; )

I like the pp work and the lighting but it's lacking in sharpness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2007 07:41:55 PM
Goodman? Hope I'm right lol... lovely background, loving the suo tone chosen!!! I like it
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Little too blurred

I LOVE the mood of this! Great tones, love the harsh blown-ness. Back to bump and to say I'm not always the brightest bulb in the box. In fact, as far as bulbs go, I've been off for some time... Les, right? Should have known by the acid... (And if it's NOT Les, it's a darn close facsimile!)

Love it! :)
I don't know what you were worried about! : )
Did you paint the background? : )

I like the colour tones, very interesting choice but I think it works well. Almost menacing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 09:59:37 PM
ok - at first I wasn't sure - but your title was so appropriate it made me look again. cool shot.

I've seen harsher. :) Excellent work and I see much beauty and strength in that stern gaze.

You look up to dealing with your reality despite its harshness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 04:53:12 PM
Les? Boy, this is dark & moody - I like it! :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 01:40:41 PM
Lesley, is that you?? This is awesome!! I LOVE the processing and edgy look.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 12:47:34 PM
Les....I think your very refined and beautiful. But yeah, our faces start sagging don't they? What a rip off.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 12:36:44 PM
I think the style works well with the clipped highlights. Gives it a nice edgy feeling which is further reinforced from your expression.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 12:06:00 PM
Love the expression, and feel you went for on your SP. Great tone, and editing. I also think your lighting helps the image with your title. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 11:21:57 AM
I really like the lighting on your face. The background is nice too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 09:15:16 AM
ICU! Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 07:43:09 AM
cool process :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 05:17:57 AM
I'm scared ;) but seriously I rate it high on "modelling" effort considering I know that you are really not that scary ;). Btw, this kind of cross processing is almost becoming your signature style. Goodluck.10.
