David, Welcome Back!
I've seen your post almost after 10 months, long gap my friend. It's a nice self portrait in soft tones and luminosity. Well done. And hope to see more of your contribution.
Best Regards,

This is more in the genre of a snapshot.
Flash isn't adding much..in fact it is creating flat lighting.
And there seems to be a camera shake.
Not really a picture I would have posted.
Your gallery has so many better images....this does not deserve a place here.
That's how I feel!

Guys, sorry to say my observations but this portrait is just a snapshot. There is no drama here at all. Just my observation as an amateur. Yancy.

This picture don't do much for your credibility. And your previous (paying) reviews are totally dishonest.

Colors are of lack saturation, focus is the pits, shadow on the wall. An awfull picture, tho by posting such a picture, you probably expected such a review. Not only desapointed by your post, but more of the "positive reviews" it got (stop taking people for idiots).
