    Why aren't you looking at the camera?

    Juxtaposing your right boob with your left elbow makes the boob look pointy. I'm sure it's perfectly fine in real life. Just a posing consideration.

    It does look like your eyes are out of focus and you added a catch light?

    I don't think the texture does anything for this image and your B&W is to soft. Don't dig the shadow form the flash and your face just looks blank...

    Nice biceps though :)

    I like the first. IMO the whites of your eyes are a little overdone.
    The second maybe better with a little reduction in opacity of the texture layer.

    Its very revealing in more ways than one. What were you feeling when you did this? Sometimes knowing the inner motive behind a photo helps people understand how the idea of the photo can be better conveyed.

    In the first one the eyes are blurry, probably because you have water running over them somewhat (and water is not a very accurate lens...lol). But in the second one, with the cracking (?) of the photo, the blurriness looks like part of the post-processing, which makes it work a lot better. Some might find the cracks are a little distracting at first, but I don't. Your pose IMO is very intense, so it takes off some of the edge. Plus it makes it less sexual, and more about your inner feelings of vulnerability and loneliness (at least, that's what I get from it).

    Edited to add: You do have some guns on you... That's crazy!

    def the first one...im not a huge fan of filters like the second (or whatever treatment you used). im just a big fan of good ol' high contrast BW. :D

    i like the comp...you have great ideas.

    I am not a fan of either but it would be really interesting to reshoot being more infocus and then try the crackle texture lightly just on you. it would be interesting to see

    The catchlights aren't in the same position (as coming from the same light source angle), and don't seem to have equal intensity.

    I like the pose and mood.

    "Damn water keeps getting in my eyes" + "god I hope I dont splash on my camera/ hot lights" = frustration and worry :)

    Hahaha yea my "guns" are attributed to 12 years of swimming and 6 years of water polo!

    (By the way, I really did accidentally splash water on my hot lights before, they shattered into a million pieces and the pieces melted into my carpet. It sounded like a gun shot. Scared the hell out of me)
