This is a first attempt at a self-portrait ( and probably the last !) Ive just had all 4 of my wisdom teeth out so I tried to portray how I was feeling in the shot, hence the dark tones....anyway critism and advice needed as always, thankyou ;0)

I like it.

Part of me is undecided about the dead space - on the one hand, this is (IMO at least), a sellable image, and some text would fit beautifully nect to it. On the other hand, I want to crop it.....


Regardless, I likes. Smile

Don't give up Lorraine, I like the space on the left. You actually look quite good considering you have been put yourself through legallised torture.

Love this shot. Really portrays pain, and induces compassion. I don't like the corner of the sleeve pointing at the mouth though.
