    Hello All! ^^^^OPPS! spelled portrait wrong^^^^

    This photo is a self portrait. PP was all done in PS CS4. I choose the charcoal art feature and played with it..i liked how it turned out..good contrast. I'm new to portraiture photography, but I figured with my canon 100mm i can shoot more than just close ups. this lens is an excellent portraiture lens!:mrgreen: Please tell me what you think.

    C&C Welcome. enjoy!

    I think it would've been BA as a B&W unPPed photo.
    Maybe this is just me, but the white on the face automatically makes me perceive the face as greasy or shiny. Idk. It's hard to explain the inner workings of my perspective.
    Are those Ray-Ban Wayfarers? I just got a pair today. [: Looove them.

    -What's with the triangle on the lower right hand corner??

    filters are best when used subtlety and in combination..
