This is my biggest (visible) scar. It's from a kidney surgery I had when I was 22. I love this scar, and am proud of it.

    When you were 22, so it was last year? ;)
    my eyes are drown to the upper part, e.g. your eyes too
    if you really want to make the scar the subject, maybe try some burning and dodging to increase the contrast,
    nice picture, i like it

    With a smile and eyes like that, who'd even see the scar!
    I know how scars can hold some people back though, so it's a refreshing change to hear you're proud of it and see it as a part of your history :)

    Your photos are beautiful, you have great talent.
