Hi Marco.
Very nice portrait. Well composed.
I'm a bit disturbing by the missing top of your head, but anyway it is very moody.

You had a good choice Marco, your shot is very good. A nice portrait, I like the attitude in it.
Well done.


Well there is no problem in sharing a good shot! It does not need any reason! Looks like a shot out of those magazine of the seventies. I like the compo, the fact that you are not completely in it is no problem at all. BW is also a good choice here!

A minor point, the contrast between your head and the background could have been a bit more...

so glad you did Marco! it's great! :-)) an excellent composition with a very cool mood to it.. very expressive and full of charecter.. mi piace molto ^_^

Marco, bella foto. Mi piace l'idea usata, vale a dire di te che stai quasi per uscire dalla foto.

Nice picture, I had a lot of fun in watching it.


Hi Marco,
I like your self-portrait! I like it because of the 'movement' in it...your pose, that is. Nice crop too, great B&W,

this is a pose with so many different interpretations that will come to mind to the viewer. i like your placement on the frame and the stoic look on your face makes this portrait a keepsake. nicely done, Marco

Marco well done, you are portraying lot's of emotions, self indiference, curiosity, moody it's 3 times I look at it & every time I could see something in that body expressions of yours, Bravo e spero che ne vedreme altro di parte tua.
Ciao Ros

This is a very interesting self portrait Marco. I feel it tells of the way our minds are drifting in the mist. This 'mist' could be the creative impulse, the wayward mind makes for good art.

Very good composition. Would be good if you could share with us how you did this pp work?


J'aime beaucoup l'audace et le style très personnel de ta photo. Bravo!
