    I think 2 is the best. 1 has a very nice composition and lighting, but the relection on his glasses is distracting. 3 is too dark and the smoke and relfection obsure his face too much. The effect gives a great mood to these shots. The composition of 2 is excelent, the lighting is good, it is clear enough to see his expression, yet noisy enough to provide the mood. I also really like how you can see though his glasses to his eye.

    Is the noise a result of the expired film, or did you apply that yourself?

    I think the noise/grain really add a neato effect to these images. make the mood look more thoughtful or contemplative, especially in number 2.

    Those are photos of you.

    And you're trying too hard.

    Otherwise, well done.

    That's a bold statement Alpha, and i respect your work and your opinion. However, you will very rarely find pictures of me. Not my thing. Haha, so maybe a little bit overdone with the model? This was my first time actually doing something like this (just got the film back) so i still have alot to learn.

    Sorry, looked just like your AV.

    Anyway, I do think the poses are a bit too obvious. But the mood is good.

    I like their atmosphere, the overall effect.
    But the 2nd and the 3rd lack of the spontaneous feel that usually this kind of pics have.
    Anyway, great job for a self-portrait starter :)
