Themed photography competition #2

The theme for the second competition is self-portrait.

Take a picture of yourself using a mirror or whatever. There are no real restrictions to it, except that it has to be taken by you (not someone else taking it for you).

The picture must be posted with the following information:
Username
Location
Date taken
Camera used

The picture must be yours.

No modifications(not even in camera) are allowed except trimming/cropping,resizing and black and white.

The pictures must be posted in a resolution of 800x600 pixels

The photo must be attached using the UCP upload system,if not it will be displayed as a link.

The photo must be taken in the period in which this competition runs.

Any users who enter and vote for themselves automatically recieve a two-competition ban from the competition and all votes previously given to his/her photo are removed.

the photograph can contain ANY image(except adulterous material) as long as it is within the theme guidelines.

If any "favor" voting is detected the person involved will be banned for 2 weeks from the competition AND the person he voted for. No asking anyone to vote for you (i know this happened often).

Good luck

PS:
I won't be here to add the first winner to the thread tomorrow(holiday). Plus i won't be here to create a poll after two weeks(holiday). I'll be back the 30th,if its not created by someone else by then i will make it. I try to find an internet-cafe somewhere.

Piacki_117, try to hold the camera with the left hand in this position:



You'll have much more stability.
Nice noise, for ISO 3200.

I wonder how many others will take a self-portrait that isn't of them holding the camera?

My face isn't something people should be looking at. I prefer to hide it.

If it has to be your face, I took a pic once in the early morning (I mean EARLY morning) with some "cool" frame around the pic

@My Porsche: it's a Wiesmann GT if I'm not mistaking. (cabrio version of it?)
