You're glowing like the sun.............great colors and good PP. It took me a minute to see the headphones because the head image is so vivid.
Nicely done!

Hi lensbaby,
I really liked the lighting in your self portrait. But I had a few pointers on the overall photo.
1. I would have really liked to see little more of the headsets and cables, in the current photos it is very hard to make out the hardset.
2. Rather than having a full front face, a side portrait would would have been more effective conveying the "enjoying the music theme".

Just a suggestion.
BTW, great for a first time poster.

This is excellent Lens Baby, welcome to the Assignments!
You’ve done a fantastic job creating a picture with all the ingredients of an album cover.

*** Check the dimensions! The longer side should be 640 pixels, see the rules...

Thanks for all the comments! Wow I didn't expect that many replies.

Thanks for the comment about wanting to see more of the headphones, and I see your point. I did these pictures as part of a series, and there are some other pictues in there that show more of the headphones, however I didn't like them as much.

Oops, I didn't see the rule about the longest dimension having to be 640! I think my longest dimension is at 600. Will I be disqualified? I will def know for next time.

Yes, you'll be disqualified, but there's nothing to stop you from changing the image. Just return to your full-size image, and downsize to 640, then edit your original post and change the image. It's done all the time; you don't need to delete the thread.

Great shot, btw; I think the view works fine, and see nothing wrong with making us look a moment before we spot the headphones.

I love the color tones and overall look of the photo. It helps to have a pretty face as the subject. Very nicely done.

I don't usually like shots looking up the nostrils, it's typically not a very flattering camera angle, but this one is excellent!

I'm curious how much post processing was done to get that glow? Or was it all in the lighting?
