Self-portrait with mirror. My entry for the self-portrait theme.

Autoportrait avec miroir. Ma soumission pour le thème de l’autoportrait.

Zelfportret met spiegel. Mijn inzending voor het zelfportret-thema.

- levels (a little more brightness added + accentuating - quite a lot - darkness in the midtones)
- a little distortion correction
- resizing and resharpening for TrekLens

Thanks for (re)viewing.

Good pic Erik. Really well thought out. So many little details, such as the different scene in the mirror (I like the forest v the block wall), bare feet on the wet floor, light used well, sharp focus.

A good demonstration of how to do a 'stand-out' self-portrait!


Hello Erik, it is not easy to take a portrait of oneself, but you have obviously thought about your shot very carefully.
The mirror was an interesting idea bringing a new dimension to the picture.
Full marks for being brave!
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Erik

I like this entry to the theme. You have a real original concept on your composition. I like the pov of a slight look up. Great color saturation and result of your efforts. Nice

Très belle auto-portriat superbe avec ce mure en fond à pied nu et ce miroir, quel contraste si en face c'est vraiment la forêt, quelle compo splendide.
Merci pour la ctitique, tu as tout a fait raison elle n'est pas de qualité, mais voilà c'était assez sombre pas beuacoup de temps.
Merci et amitié


Olá Erik
Imust say it is not easy to speak about your self-portrait. It is great to see the mirror and look the green world and see you as a gardien trying to preseve what still remains.
Your mirror reflects more than your face ...your are a mind . a soul.
You try the new, you awake our emotions... Obrigada
Um abraço
