    I rather like this. I like the angle of your head, your eyes, smile and reflection and, in a word, the composition. The main problems for me are the colours and contrast and need for some sharpening to make it stand out a bit more, but given that this is your first shot and you are using a webcam I think you have done very well. There are a lot of people on this website who can give you a lot of help in composition (mine too, if it comes to that) taking photographs and processing them afterwards, but for my money you know something about what makes a good photo already. With a bit of help you will fly.

    Hi Mr John ,

    I am really happy and appreciate your comments. I'd love to get your help for my shots. I just got a pocket camera 14MP from my parents. I'll work out on this first and look forward for your inputs on my shots.

    Cheers....

    hi ayu... ayu, what a beautiful name so is the girl..
    i like your picture.. but for me this one is a little bit over with the light and contrast...
    and your crop is to tight... try making another crop so people can see more of your reflection...
