Renata - like the overall effect in this, choice of B&W and your white bg.
Your choice of position and crop work very well.

only suggestion would be having the eyes a bitter sharper in detail, but not always easy when doing this type of shot.


well done self
excellent for a B&W : the stripped clothes ^^

Good composition...very 'Goth".
I do think that the lack of depth on the face gives an overexposed 'washed out' feel. No cheekbone detail on what is clearly a very pretty face. Detail on the earrings really helps this shot and rescues it from being too extreme in terms of contrast.
Stripes work well and I love the way the stripes accentuate the creases in the garment.
Great idea!

hi Renata

It looks very much washed-out and overexposed to me as the nose has little feature and the face too white as the same in the neck, hands and BG. The sharpness is not on the face but more on earrings, so it is a focus problem. Crop of the hand at right.

But overall this is a nice self portrait and the expression is superb. You are a pretty model.

tfs, bill
