    These are the first two photos in a series I'm doing dedicated to the five senses :] Self ports are kind of a new venture for me, I'm still learning, as well as practicing my post processing.

    Please feel free to leave some feedback!

    Oh, and check out my flickr link if you want the full description of each photo, complete with anatomy facts/tidbits (since I'm such an anatomy geek!)

    I'll post the rest of the series as I finish them in post.
    Thanks for looking! :mrgreen:

    Nicely done. A couple of thoughts: In both images I'd like to see just a little more open space image right, and I think your main light is just a little strong; not much, but the right side of your face seems just a hair over-bright to me. Regardless, I think you're on to something here; keep at it!

    Just my $00.02 worth - your milage may vary.

    thanks for the feedback!
    my main light was natural light from a large window....the photos weren't that bright SOOC, so I may have overdone it a bit in PP...

    and here's the rest of the series.... :]

    Again, check my flickr page if you care to read the full text with each photo. Personally, the last one is my least favorite...I felt it wasn't creative enough/lacked something extra. But of course I'm my own worst critic.

    Let me know what you think! Be brutal, I can take it :mrgreen:

    I wanted to use an apple for that shot, so that I could bite into it, but an orange pepper was the best I had at the time.... :[

    You have some incredible natural light going for you... I think some of your post processing is harming rather than helping. Some are bordering cheesy. #1 in its simplicity is absolutely the best of these!
