This is the color version (cropped to 8 × 10) of my self portrait. This color version shows the outcome of Rosalie’s Vintage effect much better than the black and white version.

My photographs are not always technically correct, I tend to break the rules but I do that knowing what the rules are and having a reason to do so. My photographic images are what and how I see the world around me in my minds eye—they are who I am.
Ah, yes, this does show the effect much more. And your deep blue eyes! Wow!
Thank you Ann, I’m glad you liked my try at portraiture.

Ahhhhhh yes, Nice to meet you but, be careful, I can see your soul…..
Thanks Terry. I hope what you saw wasn’t to disturbing!
Lovely work Bryan. I think I like the B&W best.
Thanks Sharon, me too.
Amazing shot – I agree with Terry!!!
Thanks Rosalie and like I told Terry, I hope what you saw wasn’t too disturbing.
Rosalie, this image was created because of a challenge by some friends to create vintage self portraits. I found it to be a fantastic challenge in that I’m not comfortable with this style of photogrpahy and it really made me work. Would this type of challenge be good for your vintage photography group or the former DPF group? Just a thought. Bryan
Congratulations on being featured in the Nostalgia group it’s a wonderfully deep and atmospheric image! :0)
Thanks Jacqueline. Some times I amaze myself and actually capture the mood that I am trying to!
This is a wonderful. I can see the wisdom in those eyes. A bit of glint tells of a sense of humor. Fantastic shot.
Thank you very much Elizabeth.
Fantastic portrait! Superb work! :-)
Thank you Robert. Having looked at your images it is a true complement indeed.
Tremendous image, congratulations on your feature!
Thank you Tainia
In my ’umble opinon the B&W wins hands down although this version does have much merit.
I agree Dennis. Thanks for the comments.
WoW! Bryan, this is a fantastic photo! Remember the old Dutch Masters of the 16th Century, where the most beautiful work (to me) is that in which the nonimportant details are in deep shadow. It’s also cool that your shirt matches your eyes. I think this would be a prize-winner in and out of RB. may I suggest a few Groups?The Americas,

(I know my recollection of the line is far from perfect, but you get what I mean. The strength of character that shows in your face in your eyes really does show a great deal about who you are. And the laugh lines at your eyes say even more.)
Thanks Dayonda for the wonderful comments.
