This is really an absolutely lovely shot! I like the relatively simple color palette it has!
Thank you! I wanted the light to stand out as the most important element, so it's nearly monochrome.

A lovely photograph, nice color & composition. :)
"...and everyone kept looking at my boobs."
As always, you leave me breathless.
The background and your beautiful face are perfect.
Thank you. The background is our bedroom wall - paint colour courtesy of the previous owners.
Profile shots are hard to pull off. Well done!
I think that's what made seeing my eyes one of the key elements of the image. They can't be seen clearly in the shots with the glasses.
I love the tones in this! Did you do a lot of post processing?
Not much, just colour adjustment and some noise reduction.
you're so nice to look at.
Well, thank you. I'm glad, otherwise my penchant for posting self-portraits would be extremely annoying, I imagine!
What a stunning profile - love the lips/nose/eyes
Thank you. I thought the lighting on my eyes was an important element in the image, which is why the ones with the shades didn't work as well.
It's a wonderful shot. You look fantastic in it. How did you get the lighting / background to match your skin tone so well?
Our bedroom walls are painted a deep brick red. It makes a striking background. I put a cooling filter on in post-processing to suck out the more extreme orange tones.
Wow you are a gifted artist and a beautiful woman. :)
That's very kind of you. Thank you.
Extraordinary! Great lighting. Beautiful picture.
Thank you. I'm glad the lighting stands out - I was hoping it would, which is partly why the palette is almost monochrome.
