Another self-portrait... I had a bit of a decisive moment there - deciding about future, having to question myself.. thats when im the best in listening to music while taking pictures. Well this is the result.
pp: b&w, frame, resize, sharpness.

beautiful black and white
frame too works very well
good composition

Hello Marina,
Another self-portrait, but a good one. I like the general "retro-feel", that is very present in spite of the "contemporary" headphones.
Good setting and an appropriate "gritty" frame.
Pose is OK as well: you look away from us, hiding your eyes, but yet it all looks very coherent, really expressing your "inward" contemplation. Even the little motion blur on your hand, which could not have worked in other photos, adds a intriguing touch here. As if you were about to do something decisive.
Good luck with your future ;o).
TFS & kind regards,

hi marina,
beautiful self-portrait and good choice for BW!!

As self portraits go, this is excellent. Good composition and a good tight framing of the pose. Good b&w treatment and gradient.

  • Great
