Evening folks Smile
A little break from my shots from Poland. Just found I've still got loads of unfinished self-portraits from earlier sessions, so here is one of them. Nothing spectacular, but I really don't have much time for sitting at my pc recently. Hopefully I'll get enough to catch ya up this week Smile

Cheers for looking, judge by large version if possible. Thanks.

The feeling I get is of a prisioner, behind bars. #1 has the feeling on an additional barrier. The eyes are staring out waiting for freedom.

Great shot and love that intense stare from behind the barrier. #1 for me where it's just a bit warmer

I like your PP work on V1 Milla. It adds a lot of value to the original shot. Putting it on the diagonal is also a very clever touch. My take on this is that you're more likely to be the prison guard rather than the prisoner. That's a very direct stare, quite intimidating in a way. Fine work though and I do like these images which have a degree of ambiguity in content and meaning.

Lol about your tidy garage remark .... it's horribly messy and full of yukky spiders.

many say this is the prisoner behind the bars but I think maybe it's someone looking into the cell and watching..... the expession and light give a feeling of freedomnot restriction. Like the image anyway... great emotion

Wow, thanks a bunch people, didn't expect it will do so well .

Yeah, I thought of a guard rather than prisoner, because of the look which I felt was attentive, stubborn and intimidating, but well, I'm open for different interpretations Smile
Cheers once again.
