Hey,

Just wanted some critiques on my self-portraits. Used my laptop to focus and had a flash mounted on my hotshoe bouncing off a white reflector and a slave flash.

I really hate the glare on my glasses in the second shot. Kept em both really sharp and only adjusted curves and the other regular RAW adjustments.

Be nice!

It looks like you're on drugs or really hating what you're doing.

And like you said, the glare is REALLY distracting and your left eye is too dark.

I also think you bumped the contrast too much where as you've lost detail. Especially in the hair.

Yeah i suck at taking "nice" looking self-photos. I always look so serious, which is not what i am like in real life. I will play with the contrast and see if that helps.

Do you know what i can do to remove the glare? I have CS4, but nothing i have tried removes the glare effectively.
