This is such a neat self-portrait! I really loved the way you played with shallow depth of field so that the camera focuses on the rusted spots on the mirror instead of your actual reflection. It has a somewhat dreamy or mysterious look. The lighting reflected slightly from underneath onto your face also adds a dynamic quality that adds to the mood. The vertical cropping and framing in this is perfect as it emphasizes the vertical lines of rust/wear spots and is suitable for a portrait. Beautiful colors with the warm pink and bright light green tones contrasting. I am surprised this did not get more attention, because it certainly deserves more. TFS!

Nice self-portrait. Really creative and unique the way you did this. You focused on the mirror rather than yourself and that makes it even more unique. I like the colors and the brightness. I also liek the way your head is titled and gives it a sort of off-balanced look. Nice work!
