I thought there will be a lot of reflections with waters, this is why I appreciate great ideas such as yours. I love the flower being the part of the iris.

Beautiful reflection in the eye, but the harsh lighting around the eye is really hurting it. A little more dof to get the closer eyelashes into focus would also help.
