This is my son Samuel, believe it or not (13 months old). He has huge eye lashes. I think I might have misunderstood the challenge. I thought it was a part of someone that stands out. In his case, it would be his eyes. Ah well, I still thought I'd share the image.

Cheers.

Hola Jacques,

Your 20D works great...tremendous photo. And Bren is right, in a little while the girls are going to be all over young Samuel...they go for that gentle soulful gaze.

Great job as usual. The focus is just spot on. The blue background makes it perfects. Works well againsts the skintone. Would have like to see this picture at number two. Like it much more than that belly :)

Congrats bro! Another badass shot deserving a bad ass ribbon, which it got!

Keep up the excellent work. I'm glad to see both Doucette brothers on the the top 10 page again. It's been a while.

Hey guys, thanks for the nice scores and wonderful comments
10/18/2004 01:37:14 AM
WOW!
Jacques, you have done well without a bug for a change. Seriously though, this is a stunning shot! I can see this as a magazine cosmetics ad background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2004 01:15:42 AM
Wow, that amazes me.

From just the eyes I have this image of a sex goddess, someone like Jessica Rabbit but for real .... and then I find out it is a 13 month old baby *laugh*

Sensational Jacko .... and not an insect in sight ;)

I like your shallow depth of field here, as it implies to me that the eyelashes just keep on going. Nice, bright image. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2004 02:29:42 PM
returning for comments
very defining. It is those shot were the viewer wants to see that dof to the last eyelash. However, the angle is very nice. Bumpimg up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2004 09:34:04 PM
The detail in this shot is amazing. This photo truly is a work of art, keep up the good work. 10. I hope you ribbon.

Hmmm.........this is just a great shot. Fits the challenge perfectly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2004 10:37:25 PM
Love it! So many of the "eye" pictures are out of focus. This one is perfect. And I love the angles .. created by the forhead, the eyelid, the lashes. Well done. Good luck in the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2004 07:21:33 PM
This is beautiful. No questions asked.

Lovely use of DoF and great composition. Well done 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2004 05:20:03 AM
You're right - those eyelashes are an exceptional feature. And this shot of them came out great. Really nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2004 10:12:32 PM
Fabulous composition and use of shallow DOF - 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2004 03:59:58 PM
Excellent macro of stunning eye lashes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2004 12:29:59 PM
Excellent use of DOF and selective focus to highlight the defining feature.
I also like the square crop.
The only thing negative might be the lack of texture in the upper right corner.
I'm thinking 8 for such affective use of photographic tools to highlight the defining feature.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/12/2004 10:59:52 PM
very well done, and fitting to the theme...this is a nice camera too, good background light, nice natural colors, nice texture and contrast of the black

What a great, clear capture. Wonderful composition wihtin the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/12/2004 04:52:29 PM
Spectacular. Perfectly executed shot. I hope this wins the challenge. Great DOF - what lense did you use.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2004 10:49:39 PM
Interesting literal interpretation of the challenge. A good shot, but I am distracted by the blurred portion in the upper right. I also try to think about the usefulness of a shot past the limits of the challenge. I really can't imagine this on anyone's walls. Overall pretty good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2004 09:02:03 PM
beautiful.,graceful, unbelivable

Great DOF. Background seems iffy, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2004 05:22:26 PM
Its real beautiful and natural looks. Thanks for quality.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2004 03:34:16 PM
great, great shot... what lens did you use? 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2004 01:32:02 PM
I think you got a little to close for me. Still a good sharp shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2004 01:00:16 PM
Eye should say so!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2004 12:26:30 PM
The DoF here works great. The photo is a little grainy but that doesn't detract at all. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautifully done. Nice and sharp. Love it.

now thats cool. nice take on the eye theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2004 01:55:39 AM
This photo is perfect and unlike the many eye close-ups it is more than just what it is. Great work. I predict a ribbon in your future. 10

PS. I think Eyelashes is one word. :)
