    The tight,off-center framing on your cheeks doesn't feel quite right. You remind me of that young guy on NBC's Scrubs...

    What method did you use to convert to monochrome? Onboard camera using a B&W program, using a physical optical filter - or - in processing through desaturation or using "channels" in Photoshop?

    To me, it appears as though you used a blue channel filter, which would result in the dark, brooding feel and the dramatic contrast that's commonly associated with that filter when used in portraiture.

    Which was it?

    Not bad for a handheld self-portrait, though I'm not usually a fan of the blue tint. What strikes me as the most funny is the catchlight that looks like an exclamation point in one eye and an apostrophe in the other. I thought that was intentionally done, at first, lol.
