January Photo Challenge: Self-Portrait

This month's challenge over at Rock the Shot Forum is a self-portrait and this is my entry.  I am always complaining about the terrible lighting inside my house (it is pretty weak).  My neighbor came over, squinted at the window, and mentioned that it sure was bright for such a gloomy day.  She was right.  My house was not flooded with light but the windows were.  Dim house + bright windows = perfect opportunity for a silhouette shot!  It was nice to work with the light conditions in my house rather than fighting against them with crazy high ISOs and too low shutter speeds.
ISO 400 |  f 3.2 | SS 1/100
Instead of using the remote I just focused on a water bottle I set on the bed and then set the timer and stepped into place.
