Eye of the Needle by Ken Follett

I wish I could've done this shot in color, but I didn't have a color shot of an eye to place behind the needle, so B&W it had to be. Hope this does alright, learnt a lot about my camera's macro capabilities doin this shot!

Kind of disturbing, perhaps a little lighter.

I like that the needle is in sharp focus but wonder what color would have been like

its a great shot.. and you should most certainly be pleased with it.. i love the sliiight sepia thing going on.. unless its just a trick of the eyes.. (pun pun pun) i like that i can really see the flawed surface of the needle.. i wish the eye were more completely in the photograph.. and i dunno.. maybe if the eye were open wider- more of a light dark balance.. i also wish i could see the iris more clearly.. although that wasn't the point ;) anyway.. great shot..

This is a very interesting appraoch to this shot, I like the way you captured the eye of the needle against the eye, very creative, the darkness adds intrigue to me, I like this shot very creative and great capture

The eyes shinyness in the background takes away from the picture, color may have been a nice thing to leave in.

I understand what you are trying to convey
but I feel that the eye is a bit distracting in this case
perhaps needs a better composition

Good macro, excellent concept. Just wish there was enough DOF to have the eye in focus, and enough light to make it look better than it does.

the needle would have been great without the eye. I love the texture of the needle

Good idea for the challenge, it does seem like the depth of field is a bit shallow though.
