Nothing too exotic here. I am expecting some pretty imaginative entries.

My first self pic. I finally took a shot of myself and now I can post a profile pic. Not comfortable on this side of the camera.

Thx all for comments.

OOps! I guess this is the second pic of me.(Fitness or vanity is the first)

Looks like a Hanes Advert. Good job.

I like this. I gave you an 8 because technically it's a great portrait. However, and this is just MY preference, I would have bumped up the mids with a curves layer. Just a touch. Great job though.

Pull the frame a bit up and left... not much, just a bit. And keep the post process a little less, I think this shot be very good. Right now, it's just "good" :) A nice shot overall :)

the background runs into your face, it looks like the same color and it seems like you made ur skin perfect to perfect

This is not intended to be an insult.

This looks like a razor ad.

The skin seems way oversmoothed to me, I love the texture in the beard and would love to see more in the skin
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2007 10:13:10 AM
overprocessed. Please be more subtle in softening skins. This looks so unnatural.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Sharp textures, would prefer the eyes be a little more to the "thirds" line.

Are you by any chance one of the Baldwin brothers? Great eyes! I like the pose within the frame, too.

Dude you need a shave ... hahahahahahah

Like the duotone

wow. whites could be a little whiter, but you can't beat that model or that composition. I like the tightness of it, even though the head is cut off, it doesn't ruin the composition. In fact, it makes it feel more intimate. There is a little loss of contrast/contour on the face (nose seems to blend into the right cheek) maybe its because of too much noise removal, but still a great image.

I am glad I did not rush to enter this one, there are so many good ones like this

Great lighting and composition. I think your B&W conversion works well also. Great expression and pose. Nice work man.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this image but the processing has taken a bit of the character out of it (or so it seems to me). Nose tends to blend into face a bit and seems too smooth under the left eye. Back to bump this up as I really love the pose and gaze on this shot.

excellent shot, great tones. good luck

Love the crop and the catch lights. The skin seems to be a touch "flat" if that makes any sense. You're cute!!! ;~D

Please don't! A little scruff is hot. Nice looking...nice shot!
