    Nice tones...but its a pity that your head is sort of blending into the background a little too much...:)

    Well, I am so fascinated with your clear eyes here, without Mindii's remark I would not even have seen that your head blends with the background. I am really happy that we get to see your eyes so clearly!

    We can see right up your nose...maybe a higher perspective would be better.

    I think a longer lens, too. You are getting facial distortion from the wide angle lens. I'd also prefer a boost in contrast.

    I should have been more clear. That camera does have a zoom lens. Portraits will turn out best with that one all the way telephoto.
