    Just a little artstic expression... went to the woods yesterday for landscapes but ended up doing a few self ports.

    Very cool! The layered rock looks fantastic in this composition. The contrast and tones are impeccably done, and the vignette pulls everything together nicely. You placed yourself nicely in the frame (twice), although because of the wide angle, you look like a young boy. Thats not necessarily a bad thing, but its sort of odd because I know you are not a young boy. LOL.

    Overall, I think its a great image, and works well.

    Love it!

    The fact that you didn't intend to do self portraits makes this shot even better, as the contrast between the rocks and your outfit is spot on. Nicely done.

    Yes very cool. :) The way you've made yourself look even younger really does a lot for the storyline in the photo.
    I like this one very much.

    [Gee, you do look like a little kid in that shot!]

    I agree with NJMan's comments. Great location with those layered rocks, and the tones are wonderful

    Thanks alot for the comments...

    Yea i do look quite young in the shot (mainly due to the wide angle!) and it also helped me seperate myself from the shot being 'the usual self port' (not that theres anything usual about it!).... so thanks ;)
