    Great effect... solitary and static but also non-stationary and crowded... I like it! I think I would crop a little off the left though as all of that does nothing for the pic

    Self portraits are really important. I think you did a great job. I am a little bummed about the photoshop work. Tell us what exactly you did.

    i traced my body and then inverted the selection so that it would select everything except my body.. next i added motion blur at 100% and there it was. thanks everyone for the critique.
