Self portrait - 41pts - Second place

Sean Slevin, Co Wexford, Ireland Canon EOS 50D, 60mm, 1/50sec at f/2.8, ISO 200 ‘I took my self-portrait shot at home using natural window light,’ says Sean. ‘The soft light reveals the textures in my skin. I wanted to create an image that would make the viewer wonder what the story is behind the picture.’ Judges say, 'Sean’s compelling black & white image is excellently imagined and technically well executed. 
A classic, timeless portrait.'
