Good self portrait. In the mod I've overworked it and converted to mono. I've destroyed the delicate feel you had to the original unfortunately.

Thanks for your comments and mods Grin

Self portraits are difficult, and this one is well done, though there are problems with it.

First, theres an extremely yellow tone, - caused I assume by an incandescent light, - or if deliberately applied, accept my apologies.

If its the light, try setting your cameras white balance to the light type, rather than leave it on Auto.

The composition, though well focused, places your eyes, - the focal point of a portrait too high in the image.

To illustrate what I mean, Ive loaded 3 mods:

1 is the prigonal shot with colour correction.

2 is a square crop, with exposure reduce, and sharpened.

3 is a tilted version of 2, - tilting the head can be a nice effect.

I hope you find this helpful,
