    A few SPs I've taken while goofing around or trying different concepts/processing.

    Overall, very solid work I think. The top photo is well-conceived, and I really like the way that painting occupies the upper right quadrant. Well-done. The "eyes" shot is pretty solid too. The least impactful is the straight forward shot of you wearing a T-shirt. All of these photos have at least some merit,and are a cut above the typical slam-bang self portraits that we see all over the web. Your posted photos demonstrate capability with a camera and post processing.

    I like the effects you're getting. In the first one, the effect is especially interesting, but the painting seems an in-cohesive compositional element, nothing ties the painting to the figure. Also the painting seems a little pedestrian (my apologies if it is an original, but it looks like a poster) for the dramatic mood you're creating.

    The window + curtain + figure creates a very interesting visual pathway, especially juxtaposed with the diagonal beam of light.

    Kudos; small criticisms of some fine work, hope that helps.
