Hoping it will do well, but I'm not quite sure. Probably not. All I did was crop, burned and dodged around the eyes and nose some, contrast and then unsharp mask, which made the reddish ring around the eyes. Hoping for a 5! C'mon 5!

It kinda looks like Salem's eye is on fire, and I'm not sure what it is, maybe a eye goober?

Bit of a rip-off of Cats isn't it?

[edit] More appropriate comment this time...
Spooky image, and a good idea (not a rip-off as I now know!), but a little bit grainy. Bumping up a bit!

Given that the target is the eyes, I would have liked to see more detail on the irises to draw out discrete color differences.

Interesting idea, but I don't think square crop is the best format.

Would be much better if it wasn't so grainy.

Rikki, this is great ;-). I could look at it for a long time, but there are others to vote on. (A second look on a better monitor - it's all black, whereas the previous less-calibrated monitor, there were patches of blue.)
Mesmerising.
