    A frame like a painting. A sustantial photograph: Shadows & light & a determined look. Brilliant & adorable!

    • Yes, as you know one’s never completely happy, but the lighting did work out reasonably well. Thanks Mimo!

    • Thanks so much Sifrim! I’m not really into self portraits (at all actually), but I thought why not give it a go and see how it turns out.

    • I must say that I’m reasonably happy with the lighting on this one, luckily I had some really nice natural light to work with. Thanks Meanderer!

  7. Stunning in its layers of meaning–mostly experienced through the light and shadows. The positioning of the portrait brings another element into play, nicely executed, Sally

  8. Oh that’s nice – quite different and very well done, JP. Its particularly good that the left eye’s colour is there, and that both eyes have highlights. Good stuff! Adrian

    • Thanks so much Adrian! Thought I would be adventurous (as it’s not really my thing) and give it a bash…

    • Thanks a lot! It’s not something I’ve attempted before, so cheers for the words of encouragement, it certainly helps a lot.
