    Awesome eyes! Very pretty.

    As for the shot, I feel that the framing is off a bit. You cut off the top of your head, for example, which is hard not to do when you're shooting at yourself. My only self-portrait has the same problem! :lol:

    I give it a thumbs up. :thumbup:

    Thoughtful, almost a melancholy look. It definitely perks my interest with the unusual angle. This is actually a pretty good shot and I know that self-portraits are hard to do. And, way to go with the bravery! A lot of people just won't bring themselves to put their image on the boards. This tells me that you have a lot of self-assurance.

    Your facial lines are striking, and you have a fresh, very attractive look. (Not flirting, I'm married happily! Just telling what I see in a very honest and forthright way as possible - I call 'em as I see 'em). An overall classic beauty, and it is wonderful to see only the smallest bit of makeup to accentuate your eyes.

    I don't have any problem with the cut-off, because it is the back of your head; it gives a feeling of really pushing out of the edge of the frame, and everything is quite balanced.

    Very cool composition, definitely a thumbs-up. My only comment would be that I would like to see one where your eye isn't on the camera (Yes, I understand that would be very difficult, just saying... )

    Looks like a myspace pic.

    More creativity needed!

    I think that because of the picture was taken on an angle and since there is very little to indicate that other than a small line above your head that it appears that you are straining your neck. At first glance I thought you were falling backward. I think that if you want to take a shot on an angle, you either need to completely mask the angle or zoom out so it is not a hidden detail.
