    my resolution for the new year is to shine to the best of my ability.
    in the things i do...
    the things i say...
    the way i treat others.
    in the way i parent and in my partnership with my husband and in my role as a daughter.
    in the way i work, both for my boss and myself.
    i just want to strive to be a better person...
    to leave a great impression with people, so that when they
    walk away from our exchange they are smiling.
    i want to be remembered as bringing happiness and joy to people.
    and i want to obtain that happiness and joy in my own life.
    i want to own it.
    what better way of doing that then to give it all away?


    anyhow... just a self portrait.

    thanks for looking. :)

    I like this one, although I feel its a bit over-SHINE'd.

    your nose is absent, and so are your lips, nearly. Did you apply the shine in photoshop or is this a camera thing? If its in photoshop, lighten the effects in your facial area, I think it will look better.
    (just my opinion!)

    there's actually no shine.
    it's pretty much a dark highkey and blown out on purpose.
    i like it the way it is. :)

    but thanks for the input.

    Well... To each his/her own. I like the way it looks, I just think you're features (nose/mouth) should be more defined.

    I love the over contrast/brightness to make her face "shine" because it makes her eyes pop (which was probably the intent?)

    I think it's great!
    I also think it would have been even better if you were wearing a white shirt. That would have really drawn all the attention to your eyes.

    Sorry but NO that is not what I am saying....I'm saying I'd like to see a little more tint on the lips....just a tad.....Thanks for trying to interpret what I am saying though.
