Another self portrait - I'm not conceited, really! lol. I used natural light through the window, mid afternoon, no flash setting. Used PSCS2 for some edits including a diffuse glow, color correction, and surface blur.

Do you live anywhere near OHIO? we have got to get you in front of my camera! I would have a ball with your face. Wonderful bone structure and this portrait rocks!

Karolyn, good work. You've reinforced the reason I DON'T do self-portraits. There are too many beautiful people around to bother trying to make myself look good :-) Fortunately for you you are one of those photogenic people and a great photographer to boot! Congrats on finalist.

regards, Graham

Congratulations, Karolyn. Great self portrait. And here, I thought, all the beautiful women were in South Dakota (my wife made me say that).

Just a short note. My original comments were made before I knew it was a self portrait. btw... my personal gallery info is not appearing for some reason. Check out my site for something different. I live in Baja and just love it. http://bajawild.net

Karolyn, I would like to know if I could possibly do a pencil sketch of this self-portrait. I love it so much and I think a drawing is in order for this one. Let me know if I could use this picture as a reference.

Well, lets put it this way, if it looks like you and you like it, we will work something out. How about that? LOL. I hope it looks like you or I'll have to retire my pencils.
