Taken in a mirror in a very dark corner of my bedroom, the slave flash on the left of the pic is hanging very precariously from a dressing gown hooked on to the door just to the side of the shot. The shot was supposed to be very contrasty. I got it in photoshop and was just going to mess with the levels a bit but decided that this image was much better.

because of how bad the lighting was at the time (athough i got the effect i wanted) I ended up using ISO1600. I can't decide whether or not the noise adds to the image or not....

PS: the compression did it no favors so i've just done it again and uploaded it again. Much sharper/better now!

Agree with Wendy, loose the camera and widen the crop!

I might have too after comments like those!
you seem to have got the votes of the ladies, good self portrait and good lighting, I think a little more detail in the darker area's would have improved this a lot but it would have overexposed your portrait so I guess it comes down to personal taste!!

Personally, I think this is the best of your self-portraits. The side lighting has worked very well to create a good strong image. As the ladies say, lose the camera/mirror technique and use a tripod on a timer. Same offset pose though...
