In my continuing vein of attempting some straight forwardly simple pictures this is just a picture of me with a single light source. My intent was to keep improving my technical ability rather than to create high art. It may be simple and unoriginal, but it's me and it looks the way I intended.

It´s a good shot but IMO the shadow is too harsh and should have lit a little bit on your left side just so you can make out your eye as I at least search that part of your face for features but that is just my personal preference of course and if you like it like this then that is all that matters. I also don´t really like the blue cast of the photo. This is anyway a good shot, way better than most in the competition, keep up the good work.

A very simple, straight-forward shot but well executed. The lighting looks good in your hair and shirt, there aren't any blown out highlights, focus is okay and composition is fine. Not the most interesting of the challenge but technically fine.

Returning for comment: Good delivery to meet the challenge. The half moon lighting here works well to delineate form and mood.

Oh what a handsome individual. I'd like to pinch your bottom! Nice lighting and colour toning too.
