    I would like your thoughts on this self portrait. I tried to give it an abstract look. Comments or suggestions welcome.

    What is that in the back ground?

    I think your focus was off a bit.

    Nice reflection-in-the-river self portrait this one is :D.
    I once made one of myself setting on the wooden bridge, too. It is fun.

    At least that is how I interpret the method here.
    Nice ... not ideal to get to know you, though ;). And there's quite a bit of headroom that I tend to study a lot more closely than your silhouette.

    Thanks Tyson and LaFoto, Spot on knowing what it is. My reflection in a shallow creek.

    I would also suggest cropping it differently. Additionally I turned the greens up a notch. How do you like it?

    Thanks Parago, I like that crop as well. Not so much negative space.
