Thanks Pascal.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of your style of photography. Your use of shadows and reflections as subjects doesn't really grab me - there's no colour variation or texture in a shadow, which makes it hard for a photo to stand out. Your best shots, in my opinion, are the ones where there's more going on than just your shadow or reflection - number 4 of the set is my favourite. Your worst shots are those which are very bare and minimal - in these there's basically no subject and so it looks as though you have taken a photo of nothing. My least favourite shots are 6 and 11 - there's just nothing in these photos that makes me want to look at them.

Like I said, I'm not a huge fan - but who knows, maybe the art critics of the future will label you an avant-garde genius :) Best of luck.

Jeeze guys why do you hate this guy so much, all he did was ask for polls... If you didn't like his photos, IGNORE the damn questions.

They look good. I think you've discovered an interesting theme, and it's a rather creative way of doing a self portrait. They work well as a series, not so well as standalone photos.

While I understood how people failed to see a purpose in you posting single photos as you did earlier, I think presenting them as a set works quite nicely! I'd definitely vote "Great, I want to see more from you !", although I'm happy to see you haven't posted another poll.

Stick to your style, it's very creative!

you pretty much fail at photography, you're arrogant, ignorant and passively offensive...

BUT,

after watching the photos as a set at least one good thing i can say it that you did a great report from pretty much all over the world as far as i can see. i hate the photo from italy, it's just plain dumb, but you succeeded in doing a global thing! so congratulations. what you're doing is more reportage than photography, so posting photos one at a time wasn't very smart because you're not looking for mistakes you make in photos, you don't want to fix what's wrong because you don't care. you're not a photographer, but you're basically a guy who travelled all over the world and succesfully showed it to us.

i just hope you made thousands of other photos from your global journey, wish you'd post those, these self portraits are really not the material that you post indvividually on forums and ask for C&C.

well maybe you're right in this case, but at least i'm openly arrogant when it's needed and actively offensive, never ignorant though.
