    By popular demand here is the BW self portrait that I have up for vote as a new possible avatar. Been getting good reviews of the small one so thought I'd share the larger one too. I really wasn't sure about the harsh lighting at first but It's starting to grow on me a bit. Just not sure if I like the full size one as much as the 100x100 avatar sized one. Probably just too self consious :oops:

    Yea the harsh lighting works really well, makes your eyes stand out loads, and the detail on the iris' is fantastic.

    I love how the left side of your face is so washed out, especially the details around your nose. Very interesting. I too loke the detail of the eye. Great picture!
