I'm sure some one is going to say this would've looked better with a lighter colored shirt... BUT... this took around and hour and not only did I slobber wine all over me but whiskey too... I smell like a Rich wino.. and my shirt will never be the same!! LOL

Oh Katie...your self-portraits always make me laugh :) The goofy faces and adequate situations you create.
They are amazingly well done :)

This is perhaps my all-time favorite self-portrait in DPC, though it's running neck-in-neck with Jutilda's cigarette-smoking housewife :-)

I knew this was you you daring woman ... loved it and it made me laugh out loud (which I don't do often) and I marveled at the creativity and the excellent manner you carried out your vision. I gave you a 9 - in retrospect it should have been a 10 - thanks for the laugh and the honesty.

It's fun. The background blurring is somewhat evident. HDR is also evident but not overdone to the point of overbearing.
