  #195 Self-portrait
Entry 7 of 20
   
 
NOT a pretty picture       ©2017 rd52
Canon EOS 7D       7th place, 97 points
1/100s, f10, ISO 640, ?, Shutter Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: In raw therapee de-saturate, faux hdr. slight vignette, cropped, local contrast increased, and saved as a tiff. In Affinity Photo cloned some stray hairs, decrease the glow on my nose using levels, curves, and the burn tool. used the sharpen tool around my right eye. Sized and saved for the challenge.       Extra Info: Hopefully for the next challenge I'll be able to enter a prettier picture.

    Hahaha, it takes courage to make yourself look older! But it was obviously effective. Congrats.

    Thanks to all for the comments. I don't look quite this bad, almost, but not quite. Did a bunch of stuff to make myself older, I'm no spring chicken, but NOT THIS OLD! Thanks for the comments and votes.

    I like this. There is a sort of wistful pensiveness which counteracts the in-your-faceness of proximity and a close crop. Tn the top half of my faves.

    You appear stuck in a very cramped box. A bit dark around the eyes which is the most important part of a portrait.

    prettier than you may think... Authentic and compelling. I like the crop and the orientation of your face in this image

    I like this in my TT-Sharp crisp with a very shallow depth of field ...the mustache hairs and skin texture are right on

    Nice - has sort of a 'Mt. Rushmore' quality to it.
