I like the wavelets echoing your tweed hat. I also like the setting, but I think a portrait crop might've served you better.

I like the wide angle. Makes the subject look whimsical and fun. The hat, coat and beard seem to go well with the natural background. Good use of even colors. Nice warm light in the background... opportunity to get some of that warm light on the face.

I like it. The glare takes from it, but it's interesting for sure. Self portrait?

Is this the exact same spot from your last portrait? :-P

Wouldn't it be better to put the camera on a tripod and use a remote control or timer.

There's too much going on in the background.

You're beginning to become a focus of your own attention there...
