Dark and stormy

If I can't get comfortable on this end of the lens myself, I don't see how I can expect anyone else to.

That's a strong jaw you've got there ma'am. I'd say you look pretty good.

Heh - I can trace my jawline back to one particular 2*great-grandfather (I think I've counted the generations correctly). We have a photo of him and his family of mostly daughters who all have the same chin I do - we can't tell if he does because he's wearing a ginormous beard.

It takes practice. Also, self-portraiture is rather different from portraiture, as one is both subject and recorder. However, I agree with the sentiment, which is why I did some self-portraits a few weekneds ago. I am... working up to posting some results. *G* The portrait portion is interesting: a person interested in unusual jewelery (I know the coin necklace is associated with Middle-Eastern dance as well), and caps or hats.

Compositionally, the white window/door frame diagonal opposite grabs my eye and pulls it away from the primary subjet, which in portraiture (self or otherwise) is the person. In that sense, it is distracting.

Re: Practice

You are right about the windowframe - I might attempt a re-crop at some stage. Thanks for the crit - I appreciate it.
