    Photo of me, edited by me, taken by my girlfriend. A little bit more abstract than a normal portrait shot. Mostly focusing on the odd color of my eyes.

    Contrast much? :)

    I actually kind of like it. The right eye (left to you) being cut-off bugs me a bit though.

    Thank you. I didn't crop it, it was the original shot, but I can totally see what you mean with the eye being cut off. Although, I was thinking about bringing it down to the left half of my face with all the background still in the image.

    Sorry, the criteria for being a Ginger is:

    Pale skin
    Freckles
    Bright red hair

    I only meet one part of the criteria, and that is freckles. What's that? Oh, it's the failboat calling. You better hop on!

    I think it would look better if you cropped it so it was just the left half of your face and you left the rest of the background still... Can you do that and post it so we can see how it looks.

    cropped eye aint bothering me, Its nice to not rigidly obey the rules from time to time, thats how things evolve. looks like a print ad from a magazine or something - dunno if you want that or not. certainly dont see how thats abstract though
