Not really what I wanted to capture (not what I had in my head) and not sure how it will be received. I think people will think it's too washed out, blown out.... WHITE!!
Had to blow most of the image out cos of the shallow DOF and grain from 1600. lol, maybe someone will think it's arty, not just terrible lighting and poor technique.
Need some lights, off camera flashes.... anything :)
Levels, hue shift, couple of color filters, Brightness/Contrast and desat. A pass through NeatImage. A bit of USM, border and viola.
It is a picture of my daughter reflected in my wifes eye. The picture is on my laptop which is held about 2 inches from her eye. My wife, like I'm sure alot of others here, is very understanding. Thanks hon.

I'm a fan of those who push the edges of normal photography to take us inside, into the artistic realm of imagination...this photo does all that with great clarity. Congrats on such a high Avg from commenters!

Very nicely done! Can't wait to see how you did it. The only way I can figure is a poster size eye with a hole cut in the pupil and a child looking through it.
