Michaelantonio Jones has sent in this very dramatic self portrait. If you have never tried a self portrait, I highly recommend trying one, it isn't as easy as you would think. I really like this image, the pose and the lighting. It has great textures and tones, even the light catching in the corner of the lens is interesting. If I had to change anything I would try to get a darker background so when the light hits, it won't be so bright. The bright spot in the background really pulls you away from the face. You could dodge it a bit to bring down the brightness. Even with the background this is very well done.
