Lovely self portrait. To get a good one is more challenging than one would expect and I hope that you're proud of this. The crop is also most effective. Keep up the good work.

Very good effort, next time you try, think of what you are wearing as the bright white catches the eye and draws the viewer away from the face. Get a sheet of white card and put it the other side of the head from the light source to bounce light back into the hair. As you are loosing all the detail in your version.
But very good effort.

Smile my dear... smile... Smile

I quite like the poorly lit scene and your face does merge lovely from the blackness. This might adds a bit more on an abstract feel to in in a way, but it also give some third dimention in my opinion.
I am not to fuzzed about perfect light in my portrais myself, surely it's a nice thing but i prefere more the "naturel" side of low-light myself.
The only other thing that i might would mention is the white right hand corner. If you are already wearing dark close and like your face to emerge from the picture you would have benifited from a darker backdrop i think.

Oops, it got a bit long here sorry. Don't get me wrong i DO LIKE your photo but the white corner seems a bit distracting (just a little).

Welcome to EPZ , your eyes are very well placed. It can't be easy to do self portraits and I think you've made an excellent start to your gallery.
