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.
