    Awesome shot. I would, however suggest a polarizing filter. The glare on the glasses is distracting.

    I like the glare on the glasses. But thats my personal preference.

    I really like this shot

    I didn't think about the polarizer filter before, but I think I like the glare, it gives it a different feeling and it doesn't reveal the eyes... I had a very hard time getting the right focus, since I took it myself and had to focus manually

    You guys might be right about the glare, though when viewing portraits, I generally look to the eyes first. In this case I can't. I personally thought it was distracting, but hey, what do I know?

    The glare from the glasses is distracting from an otherwise very nice self portrait. The nose and right cheek is also overexposed (soft), showing less definition and features.

    i like the glare, to me it adds to the picture because it makes it a bit more "mysterious" seeing as not only can you not see the eyes but the reflection is even a little hard to see. thats just me though

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the reflection in the glasses! It shows his hand and the keyboard of a computer, which says a lot about him, in my opinion. Don't dismiss it too soon... ;)
