Great idea, and it came out very well. Haunting.

After spending some time contemplating this alongside previous self portraits, I come to no conclusion. Certainly there is predilection for the arras, albeit mitigated by seductive transparency, but on the whole I fear me should a certain Great Dane visit your house. I mean you have shown where is your heart.

I assume you're in there somewhere, but without the title of the challenge, I'd never take this picture for a portrait.

aaah...there is. I've looked at this image 4 or 5 times because I knew there was something I should be seeing. I've never tried a shot like this but the general rule of thumb is to have the person in front of the camera for half the exposure. (i.e if its a 4 second exposure the person needs to be in the scene for 2 seconds). tough to manage on a self-portrait but I think you weren't in the scene long enough and as such the image of you in the scene is very faint.

I love this low key image. Mysterious and a bit haunting. Bumping up to 9

this says much about you

It would be better if more of your face is exposed then making others looking hard for it

I have looked and looked and thought and thought about this image. Congratulations that is all you can ask for in any image.

Seems the top of the crop are going for this dreamy look. This may be too far out of the box to score well, but it rocks. Gentle haunted and haunting.

Cool effect. A little bit too abstract for my tastes in this challenge, but it's definitely original.

This is a really cool idea and I like the shot but it's so dark that it's difficult to tell what the image is.

I would like to see this cropped a bit more.. nice otherwise!
