I really like your self-portrait.I like the B&W processing of both shots. To my taste, the face (especially the beard) on the first one is over-sharpened. Across the rest of the image that level of sharpening looks good though.Solid work, man.
I agree with bchernicoff. Nicely done petach.
They both look great to me! Very cool, imo.
You've definitely got a good eye for a picture !
