One of my top picks.
Made me happy to know it's you. Thought you'd left.
Well done.

I'm inclined to say that there's not enough of the intended "subject" in this "camera" self-portrait, but there's just something about the artistic quality of this shot... I keep coming back to it. Find it rare that I give out a 10, but you get one for making me look at it this much ;o)

The adjectives "earthy" and "mysterious" both come to mind. At any rate it graps me.

One of the best images IMO. I like the fact that I cannot tell what kind of camera it is, it has a sense of mystery to it.

It's very arty, with a good feel. The only problem is that I can't find an emotion to go with it - it's as if it wants to be meaningful, without having anything to say. Good light, though!

gave this a ten! it's a gorgeously sensual image, really is. i might like it a bit more if it was some harlot with black finger nail polish, but as it is it's wonderful. the lighting is fantastic, the sepia tones work wonderfully well, composition can't be faulted. a totally flawless image with mood, feeling and buckets of style.

I like your image and will vote it accordingly, though I feel you have hidden your camera too much. So much so, that we can't tell what make it is, let alone model!

a bit dark for my taste.
