Self Portrait 2

By mattmatic  
Tidied up some dodgy masking (ahem!), added some space to the right.

Let me know what you think of the colour version Wink
( Here's the B&W version )

Fire away!!

The quality looks great. It's nice and sharp and the colour tones look accurate. I'd like to see what this would look like with some back lighting, just to compare. I'll leave it to the experts to advise on that topic though!

Looks rather too normal Matt - no google eyes or other deformaties? Or perhaps this isn't "normal" and has been modified Wink Well lit anyway - a very respectable portrait in my book.

Thanks Patrick.
Andrew - LOL! I know it's completely out of character :o) Like yesterday's B&W I was trying to get some half-decent lighting without having to fork out on serious studio flash.

Add some breasts and I'm sure this would get more clicks.

Thought I might get a couple more clicks... hey ho!

Had I know where I would end up in the Reader Gallery, I would've posted later Smile Maybe there's a distraction going on...

LOL - Yes, putting it into the 'Glamour/Nude' category would add more interest, I think!

so strange to see what you really look like. i hardly recognized you. you look all,...well-behaved, your wife must be happy.

you look good. it's a good portrait, though perhaps the right eye is a little over-dodged.

i like it, but i like the crazy portraits, cause they're so full of soul!

this one's got a bit of a "hope this will come out sharp" feel to it, though i like the little smile.

Thanks Lucie Wink
