'Pi' in the eye.
1st Place'Pi' in the eye.

Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Pi (Classic Editing)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S602Z
Location: Home
Date: Apr 5, 2003
Aperture: F2.8
ISO: 160
Shutter: 1/100
Galleries: Portraiture, Macro
Date Uploaded: Apr 5, 2003

I cut a 'pi' symbol from a piece of white paper and attached it to a sheet of black tag-board, then cut a (lens size) circular hole between the vertical parts of the 'pi' symbol to allow for the camera to be setup/positioned behind it for the photo. I then had my subject (daughter) position her eye in front of the camera which could then capture the reflection of the 'pi' symbol on her eye.

Nice one. Another choice: use a real contact lens painted with Pi symbol... :D

But your trick is better!

Well deserved win, Richard. I know I'm supposed to ignore the low scores but I would love to know why two people thought you should have a 1. Yours was my favorite this week and also the favorite of the math guys I work with. You photos always are the result of great care and expert execution. I look forward to seeing yours in the future.

This is a really cool shot. How did you do it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2003 01:07:31 PM
Absolutley Incredible--- the focus is so sharp-- a little overexposed on the sides, but I'm so in love with it--- 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2003 10:53:16 AM
Really cool! I'm giving it 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my favourites this week. Great colours, focus and cropping. I like the idea and composition too. Very well done. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2003 12:50:28 PM
Interesting shot. I don't normally like close-ups of eyes, but this is cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2003 07:40:11 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2003 09:04:14 PM
A really nice photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2003 08:19:04 PM
You really got me fool, cause i can't see how this is possible... unless you have a contact with a pi on it. Very cool shot though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2003 04:27:36 PM
wow, HOW? did you do it... fantastic!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2003 02:42:56 PM
If this photot doesnt win, I'll be SHOCKED.. I cant understand how you did this without editing (Im assuming a directlight with a Pi shaped filter/blockout on it), but regardless, congrats on a GREAT shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonerfully clever. I'd like to see the rest of the girl.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2003 10:26:04 AM
Simply a great photo with tremendous imagination. I'm new in this group, but this level of picture scares me:-) Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2003 06:15:47 AM
How you do that? Excellent shot 10. Clear winner
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2003 04:46:08 AM
You stumped me. Can't wait to see how you achieved this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2003 02:12:08 AM
thats amazing! excellent job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2003 11:02:51 PM
This one and the other eye photo are my favorites this week. I hope you share how you did this with us when the challenge is over. To bad the upper right is overexposed but the white of the eye is perfect. Nice Job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2003 06:23:25 PM
I like the placement of the eyeball, but it's a bit shabby around the edges though. The idea is very good - trick contact lense?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2003 02:51:43 PM
Excellent shot. I would lkie to have the left part of the eye in the photo also, to give more sense of "wholeness." The blown out upper right corner works great. I think forgetting the rule of thirds on this would have worked better, as stated before. Do I take it that is a contact?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2003 10:51:50 AM
Is it a contact lense? I don't know how you did it but it works and you impressed me. A little too blown out in the top right for me although itwas your intention, otherwise an excellent photo - 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2003 10:37:55 AM
i like this a lot, however i think a tighter vertical crop would have been better, the top half of the photo above the eye doesn't seem to fit
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2003 10:34:00 AM
Very nice, well done. Tied for my pick of the week. 10 Morgan
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2003 04:20:57 AM
how'd you do that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 11:50:02 PM
that is very cool. very good foucs. how did you do it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 10:45:53 PM
The colors of the eye shadow really add a "technological feel" to this shot. Very effective cropping and idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 08:17:18 PM
great shot...love the detail!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 08:05:19 PM

04/07/2003 07:16:18 PM
very cool photo but to bright above the eye. But very nice...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 06:38:02 PM
Really good work...nice. Great idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 06:21:39 PM
Great concept and picture. A little too washed out on the edges.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 05:33:28 PM
Fantastic shot! Too bad I can't vote on this one (not a member)... I have to say your effect is absolutely incredible!!! Aside from the effect, I love the detail of this macro shot. On the downside, the overexposed portion around the top and right edges does take away from the overall impact of the shot. Hope this one does well for you!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 05:06:38 PM
Did you paint that on a contact lens or something? I hope you're going to tell us how you did it. This is my pick of the week. I'll even admit it is better than my own submission. I'm giving it a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 02:34:38 PM
Centered on the eye would have been better. Contacts? Great idea and very ingenious.
04/07/2003 11:58:31 AM
WOW. How the?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 11:58:29 AM
I'd love to know how you did this, its very striking!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 11:23:28 AM
Deffinately a "how they do that". This is awsome.Well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 08:48:40 AM
ha ha good! I supposed you taped the Pi in the contact lens? Incredible! The only thing is that we should have been able to see the whole eye. Good idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 06:35:46 AM
Very cool. Could also have been 'Pi-eyed'? This is the best one I've seen so far. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 03:32:34 AM
I just want to ask - how did you do that. Excellent entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 02:53:30 AM
Now that's a Pi in the eye. Nice colour too. Nice photography, congratulations.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 02:05:08 AM
Pretty cool however you did it!! But there's too much white space on the right I think. Should have just centered it. Very good shot! 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 01:03:28 AM
If that\'s legit, that\'s awesome! You better write up a how\'d they do that! 10 -- First place -- Have a nice week!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 12:14:45 AM
how did ya do that without violating the rules? wow cool... 8 for starters! gotta check the rest first
