This image took about 90 tries to get right. Well, the focus isn't spot on, I had a few shots that had better but they had some other faults. *sigh* Either the focus was wrong or the eye was in the wrong place :) .
This image is a straight copy of the original, no cropping or other modifications done. The webcam I'm using is small so I can hold it right under my eye and I can get very nice macro shots by unscrewing the lens halfway.

Extreme close-ups of eyes kind of creep me out. Your capture of the reflection is pretty good though. lhall-6

This is a great picture and a great concept, deserves first place.

Very nicely done. Just a pity it needs to be a bit sharper and more saturated. It would have got a 10.

its kind of blurry.

did you catch it?

I just don't like closeups on skin, it grosses me out.

Great detail! The hand comes through pretty well. No suggestions, don't see anything needing improvement. 10 Swash

Wow, how long did it take you to set up this shot to get it just right? Very nice and creative.

Cool reflections in the iris! Don't like the composition and cropping.

Meets challenge, good detail around eye, clear reflection. Good luck in the challenge. Grayce aka Gracious

I like the concept and the execution. One thing that would have made this an OH WOW piece is for the reflected object to be an OH WOW object and to me the hand on the glass isn't quite it. Not that I know what IT is but it isn't my shot :) Good work.

Superb idea, well executed. I like the way you have done this; the hand was perhaps, not such a good selection because of the definition problems created by the virtually uncontrollable DOF. Perhaps a car or even just the window frame would have slightly improved the shot. Having said that it holds the attention and meets the challenge. (9)
