    :-0 Funny guys! :)

    Funny thing is that after uploading it, I changed my mind about the post but could not find out how to delete it. Guess I could have asked a moderator to delete it but just wasn't thinking straight.

    the lampshade??? coming out of your armpit is distracting and I think your conversion could use a little more contrast...it's a little bit muddy.

    I agree with Farrah the lampshade is very distracting and it just brings my attention to your armpit. The photo isn't working for me.

    I agree with removing the lampshade, it looks like you are wearing a paisley in your armpit. I think adjusting the contrast will help, but a problem I see regardless is that your face is being lit rather flat and is sort of taking backseat to the rest of your body for attention, since the rest of your body is high in contrast because of a lot of black hair on a light toned body. It would take a lot of work to try to create less attention on your upper body and bring in more engaging tones on your face.

    There is a reflection on your glasses that is eclipsing your eye. And I would decrease the amount of head room to improve the comp.

    I do like all the textures in the image: jeans, comforter, wood head board, skin, hair, glass, etc. If you can work out the tonal issues imo it would improve the image considerably.
