It is always interesting to see artists releasing self-portraiture and giving us an idea of how they view themselves. Certainly one should not be a slave to the rules of composition but this shot is excellent proof that they are viable guidelines. Most points of interest within the piece fall somewhere near where a viewer's gaze is naturally drawn, lending strong weight to the elements of the photo that stand out. The raised arm and hand position imply warmth rather than a static, posed portrait. Very subtle tones in the make-up help to keep a soft, welcoming visage that isn't overstated. The vibrant color of your hair against white would already help to frame your face for the viewer but the locks swept across one side really help to accentuate an intimacy with anyone who comes across this. The lone eye seems to inquire, "What is it that you see when you look in my direction?" A unique and alluring photo.

The overall photo in presence: Amazing! The complete asymmetry of 'your' right side being hidden and blocked is amazing! In this photo I would almost suggest emphasizing [your] left eye by blurring the rest of the image slightly [in any aspect]. The fire-red hair in any portrait brings out GREAT contrast in essence to the ever-flowing white, and dismal grays in the photo. The appearance of this photo is so well thought out, that it would leave the audience GRASPING the table to view the rest of the body; love the view. Would like to see more in sense of a larger, spanned-out portrait-type view of this photo JUST because of the limited body drawn here but, that I would guess is EXACTLY what you [the author] intended.

Your self portraits are great. Love the vibrant red hair matched with your heavy eye make-up.
Very strong, yet sexy image.

You would make a great female 'heroic' character in illustrations.

Just an amazing shot... I don't have enough of a critical eye to be able to tell you about composition or whether the fact that you are a little off-center in the shot makes it better or worse. However, I can tell you that the beauty of the shot and look on your face took my breath away at first glance and just sucked me into the picture. That is what I always consider when looking at art... the immediate impact at a sub-conscious level and this does that for me.

The subtle 3D effect of the elbow in the air really gives a nice sense of depth to this photo and the way you frame the one eye really draws the attention to your face and then that beautiful piercing blue eye really completes this portrait in my opinion. Keep up the good work!

I see neither dirt nor a baby. I have been lied to and swindled. Bold face lies!

The orange hair and blue eye really come out in this photo. Looks great

Dissecting artwork with words is like dissecting a drumbeat to try and teach someone rhythm. If you cannot just see how to frame something without instruction you will never be a good photographer. And if you can't see beauty across the spectrum of all things without a critic telling you what you are looking at then you have failed in taste and confidence, because beauty is universal and instinctive and analysis doesn't do it justice. Words punctuates the immediacy of beauty and prevent the mind from instinctively appreciating what the senses are absorbing. The further you go with words, the further from the truth you go, because you loose the perfection of abstraction, to say I love this, or that you are beautiful, is more accurate than writing 1000 words, or 100. At least I think so anyway :)

Wow! Beautiful!
Largeandhard Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012
I see what appears to be perfectly posed and prepped however it most likely is not. This is a stunning shot of a beautiful lady who for just a moment let her guard down. Vulnerability like this cannot be created for the moment... it is real. Though I can see only one eye it is enough to look deep into her soul and to become spellbound.

This is art at it's purest form... a remarkable beauty, a moment of trust and a quick lens that captured everything. This is worthy of many many words...

This picture is sooo beautiful! Or rather, you are really beautiful in this picture :)
I really love how you're hair cover your right eye. It gives a feeling that something is just waiting under there to spring forth. I also love the colour of your hair, it really suits you.

Continue the good work :)
