as suggested by paulo i took out the colour and realized that i had to crop it a little too. and yes, it works! :) although i think it´s still a little too, mhh, artificial or something. i don´t know..

The lighting is excellent. To me, to look natural this would need either real-life background items or a much much closer crop.

thank you indeed dhania, you got it right. the setting is not natural, so why look natural - it maybe would be a greater break of the picture to do so.
nevertheless, i think i found out what irritates me: i´m just not used to see myself like i´m shown here. :D

anyway, this picture reminds me of someone i like very much. oh, and the light is beautiful, i think~
