I think the picture tells all you need to know.

This is one of the most powerful and awesome pieces I have seen today.
Since I am a huge fan of close ups, it stands out as tremendous to begin with, but also, something about black and white photography makes the mood more mysterious and beautiful.
The lighting is also very perfect for this scene, and the piece in general seems to say to me "I've got a secret... come a little closer and I'll tell you... or perhaps I'll kill you. ^_^"
The picture is very level and the lips of the model are very alluring, and I LOVE the way you can just barely see a hint of an earring.
The model's skin is very clean and soft-looking.
In general, I give this picture 100%.
What do you think?

Thank you very much. This is the self-portrait I am proudest of. Not quite what I had in my mind when I took it yet the results were way beyond of what I had imagined. A nice surprised, to be honest.

Thank you.

This one, I'm very proud of. A self-portrait yet I managed to capture such a nice photograph while holding the camera in front of me with one hand. *giggles*

Ihanan voimakas kuva, toi mustavalkoisuus lisää vielä valon ja varjon dramatiikkaa (kauheen hienostelevan kuulosta tekstiä taas tähän aikaan). Hieno kuva, aivan mahtava :aww:

Erittäin suuret kiitokset!

Tämä on ehdottomasti paras omakuvani. Yllättävästi ei ollut vaikea ottaa. Silti olen erittäin tyytyväinen tähän kuvaan.

Aina välillä on lupa hienostella. *kehrää*

Yleensä ne parhaat kuvat tulee yllättävän helposti, liikaa kun panostaa ni mulla näkyy ainakin yleensä se suoraan kuvassa :) Ja niin on :D

Tuokin on totta...joitakin taas ei meinaa millään saada juuri sellaiseksi kun haluaa. Tämä ei ollut yksi niistä, onnekseni.

You didn't realise you had beautiful Lips until last year...???????

To be more specific this is the photograph that made me realize it: [link]

My guess is because I didn't really use lip balm or anything until then so it was dried which resulted occasionally not such a nice look.

No specific reason. The idea for this photograph came from "See no Evil, Hear no Evil and Speak no Evil". The best idea to fulfill this idea was for the "Speak no Evil". No matter how hard I thought I couldn't figure out a nice way for the other two.

This is personally on of my best photographs and I'm very proud of how well it turned out.

Vielen dank.

Ich bin auch damit sehr zufrieden besonders weil es ein Selbstportrait ist. Aber auch am sonsten bin ich sehr zufriende mit dieses Bild. Ist bestimmt eine von meinen besten Bildern die ich je genommen habe.

I love the feel of this a lot. The soft texture and smooth edit are both wonderful. It ironically says a lot. Such a perfect picture.
