Have been trying out a bit of lighting in this self portrait. Would welcome your comments on this and the black and white conversion.

Oh and SteveDak . . . yes I did take this! :lol:

Could do with a bloody good shave,if you ask me:G

Syd as I've said before I'm really not qualified to comment on portraits - I definitely prefer the B&Wversion but to my untrained eye these are not as good as your first effort. Quite like the lighting though. Are thesemaybenot too 'close-up'?

Very uneducated comment, but for what it's worth anyway.

This portrait has quite an expressive quality, IMO.
It suggests a fateful moment of the subject. The warm light dyes the features giving a monotone feel. Coul it be less bright around the nose...Anyway, I'd favour the first one.
Very well, I think
