I really, really want to like this image, but something just doesn't click for me. I'm sure it has something to do with the extremely shallow dof. So much of the detail of the eye is lost in the front and back. I'm sure you were intending the very singular focus on the saturated portion of the eyeball, but I think you would have gotten more 'wow' if the other parts of the eye had been gently (not dramatically) defocused. On the other hand, the portions of the skin just below, and to the top left, that are in sharp focus add a tantalizing element of wonder, and give the eye places to stop and rest as it roams over the photo. I've been back to this entry several times (remember, I REALLY want to like it) and haven't tired of looking yet. I just think it could have been stronger...

fantastic image. i would've perhaps named it "line of sight" or something similar in order to make the connection more obvious (although perhaps that wasn't the line you were intending to depict). great use of selective desat here.

Good macro. I love the reflection, trying to figure out what it is. A kindergarden perhaps? :)

Wickedly well done. I'm not a bit eye shot fan, but this is cool. Especially the lines in the vision. 9

I really like this. The detail in the reflection is awesome. I'm not sure why the green extends out of the retina into the white of the eye and looks kind of smeared, but it must be something I don't get. Still a 9 from me! Good luck!

One of the most interesting macro eye shots I have seen. Too bad more of the eye wasn't in focus.
