Here is a self portrait and....my first attempt at portraits. Yes, I processed it in photoshop and gave it an edgy/grungy look. I know some of you don't like the look but I like experimenting in PS.

Any advice ? I have already noticed 2 things: 1- halo around ears and hair and focus seems to be on my nose and not my eyes.

C&C are welcomed, thank you for viewing.

Joe, it's kind of a porcupine look. I like it. Nice PP. I think it would be better without the t-shirt though.

Looks like a repost but in Black and white....might have said so.

Well I think there is too much post processing, but otherwise than that, it's a pretty good portrait. Here's a video (external link)on portraits.

I dig it, but the facial hair is a bit too sharp, which is causing a strain on the eyes.

Too much post sharpening.
