A happy accident, I'd say. Si.

I realized it had very poor quality once I saw it on EPZ. I have found that the pictures don't look the same as the look on FB or other sites.
Thanks for noticing!

I love this shot. I could't wait to open it up once I saw it was another in your self portrait series. The whole thing is sooooo creative.
I'm looking forward to more.

Thanks Walter, I am not sure about another one that seems to grainy in EPZ. It doesn't look that way in the editor...You are such a great supporter of my experiments!
Gracias, un beso.

Minimal but showing JUST enough to make it a worthy portrait!

I don't understand this, Marian but the fault is with the receiver not the transmitter.
Another vote for the accident.

A great accident, Marian. This is the best so far, although it is only a quarter of the face, it speaks a lot. Well done, my friend!

Looks better on the thumbnail and probably a case where smaller is better. The composition is good.

A creative crop and I like the effect too, Marian.

I would be very happy to have this hanging in my home, Marian. I find myself being drawn inexorably into her eye and thereby her soul.
Have you thought of doing a b&w version?

I will upload a B&W version. I am very happy that it received the Saltireblue seal of approval! YAY! Gracias Malc!

I guess you are right, it looks better in a more compact version. I have no idea of how to do it, though...Sad

This may make it a 30...

It works - and don't ever worry about grain. It's OK!

I'd love to see more description of how the accident happened - but the result is nice.

Thanks for the 30th vote John!
I pointed the camera at my sister and myself to take a picture cell-phone style but forgot I had zoom in for a previous shot. That's why it is not grainy from lack of light but from lack of focus.
I only desaturated it, increased contrast and tinted, that's exactly the crop straight from the camera.Smile

Superb, especially in colour.

( If you put a wide border around it the same colour as the background, i.e. black, then when you resize it for uploading, the actual image will be smaller and the border will not be visible )

(Jeez, you are supersmart, Alan...I would've never thought about that, thanks...Smile I am not being facetious, I am serious, I can be very silly quite often...Wink)
Sometimes as artists the best work we do are our "mistakes" and sometimes they take us to new places.
