'kinda'?? You're gorgeous, girl! But you don't need me to tell you that because you should already know that!

I do agree that this would be a lovely photo more suited for Facebook, but it's photography all the same; if you like taking pictures of yourself to express yourself, i believe that's just the same as taking pictures of animals/scenery/other people, etc. However, you could definitely further extend your use of your camera with 'self-portraits' such as this one, s...

Your acts of getting attention saddens me, this isn't photography, this is narcissism.

I agree with JustAnotherOwl. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it all. Seriously.

This is a discussion board. A community. How will she get realistic feedback if we keep it only nice? I agree with LiteCloud.

this picture is very pretty. even though these kind of photos belong on facebook its still a good shot and us who appreciate photography should recognize the fact that it probably took some effort to take this photo.

Besides you being beautiful it's actually a very good photograph the back light is perfect for lighting up your hair.  The angle of your head also makes this photo very pretty

Okay, I'm just gonna be the first guy to make a comment,  I think.

You are so pretty! I like what you have done with your hair, it looks natural and flowing!

You have amazing eyes, they look kind, warm, and gentle, not to forget thoughtful.

Sorry, first time in my life that I commented on a girl's looks.  :P

 This absoulutly beautifull.

Now, bear with me as I launch into a tirade about how society crushes our self confidence:

Out of all the teenage girls I know I only think one is ugly: Me. 

As crazy as it is, I see beauty everywhere except in myself. I think this is the case for a lot of people. And how can we help it? With the media, the way adults portray conventional teenage beauty. I get the feeling they are trying to trick us into thinkin... (more »)
