Actually took this Tuesday night, a last minute entry. I had thought of a dozen different things I wanted to try, none of which really turned out the way I wanted. BUT, I still wanted to enter something, so, here it is.
Hopefully some of you will like this, I think it turned out pretty neat looking.
If the majority doesn't agree, I'll take the hint I should stay out of "Self Portrait" challenges! lol

I really think this is a great idea and pose. My only beef is your editing. It doesn't give the feel of a portrait, there is really wierd shadows on your face and sweatshirt. Hover the lighting is good and so is your composition. Nice work.
