Congratulations, Arnit, this is beautiful work. I love the yellowish part of her eye, surrounding the pupil, how it's irregular, and all the little dark lines going out from the middle. Beautiful.

Great shot! Needs a little more digital cleaning in the white area under the eye... the cut out is visible... there should be a smoother transition from transparency to the eye... Otherwise absolutely beautiful eye!

Ég skal hugsa málið. Bolurinn er ansi freistandi. Hvað ætli fólk haldi samt sem er að lesa þetta. Skilur ekki rass í bala og reynir að nota einhverja þýðingarvélar kannski og fær ábyggilega einhverja vitleysu. Jafnvel að maður skrif eitthvað eins og kötturinn sem átti borðið stólaði á hestinn til að borða finnan til að senda árið til hægri. Svona ef þau skyldu reyna að þýða :)
03/29/2004 06:50:57 PM
Hann er vel notaður stafirnir sjást varla lengur, hmmm rússneskir eru dýrari þú veist það, þá yrði ég að taka myndavélina líka
03/29/2004 06:19:09 PM
Ef þú notaðir bolinn þá gætum við verið að tala saman. Eru þetta rússneskir stökkdvergar?
03/29/2004 04:00:33 PM
3 stökkdvergar lítið notaður klósettbursti og gamall Iron Maiden bolur, þetta er lokatilboð
03/29/2004 01:45:38 PM
bara hörku prútt í gangi:o

Ég býð 8 þúsund rúblur og gömlu kódakmyndavélina sem ég fékk í fermingargjöf í allt draslið og málið er dautt!

03/29/2004 01:13:44 PM
Ég reyndar á líka 100mm F/2.8 Macro linsu en var ekki með hana á mér þarna þegar ég tók þessa. Býðurðu betur en 6þús heiða :)
03/29/2004 11:21:00 AM
Mig langar líka í L linsu, ég býð 6 þús kall... Annars til lukku með þetta, maður gat nú hengt sig á það að þessi færi ofarlega

ok takk ég hélt þú værir með macro linsu dauðans, Mig langar í L linsu Selja hana á 5þús kall? ;) híhí
03/29/2004 10:01:51 AM
heida: Ég var með 24-70mm F/2.8 linsuna mína. Skaut þessa á 70mm og cropaði smá.

I was just answering heida what kind of lense I was using. Thanks again for all those great comments. I'm glad you liked it.

This is ONE amazing challenge entry.. in over the year I have been here I have seen a few..and this is one... Congratulations

I think you are one of the most creative and versatile photographers on this site. I often find after the challenge that an image I have really liked and thought unusual and original was taken by you.

Congrats, Arnit, on the blue ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2004 03:33:45 AM
Thanks for all those great comments. And yes this is the same model I often use, Brynja Bjornsdottir. Forgot to put her name in the Photographer's Comments.
03/29/2004 03:28:39 AM
Wonderful! I couldn't as for more than a smart blur in the the blue chanel to eliminate some of the background noise. The over all red cast bothers me but I suppose most folks won't notice it...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2004 02:08:59 AM

fantastic! another reason I am a fan of yours! :)
03/29/2004 12:01:26 AM
Arni, this girl has the most beautiful eyes. I assume this is the same model you have used in the past. Every photo I have ever seen of her draws me in with her eyes... great work as usual :)

Great focus, seems unnaturally blurred.
03/28/2004 05:41:47 PM
Nice Shot and Theme

03/27/2004 05:20:09 PM
Beautiful photo.
03/27/2004 05:15:33 PM
Nice one.... Maybe a little too much brush / blur on her eye brow, because the perspective seems wrong. But nice anyway... 8 from me. I think this got a chance for a ribbon...

Wow ...
03/26/2004 11:29:31 PM
Eye think you have a winner here. One of my favorites. DOF is just a little too shallow (the highlight and edge of the iris), but what a striking cover! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2004 10:59:34 PM
Wish the eyebrow was in focus too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2004 09:12:03 PM
Very neat effect. Love high key shots. Great job. Jacko. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2004 07:53:03 PM
'Eye' really like this shot, it's crisp and clean and the white space is great and imo the eye is placed perfectly. dof of the lashes adds to the feel but if I had to pick a part that lets is down (ever so slightly) its the eyebrow. Will read with interest how you created this image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2004 04:45:36 PM
Wow, This is an amazing shot... How did you get the fade around the eye? It kind of looks like a hole in a piece of paper that is out of focus?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2004 11:22:47 AM
Thouroghly enjoyable photo to look at. I expecialy love the way the Iris eplodes into colors and pattern resembling deep space photos.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2004 09:18:50 AM
Perfect ..How did you do this??
03/25/2004 05:15:39 PM
i went to the eye magazine website to check out the appropriateness of your excellent entry--pretty cool periodical and wonderful site. your photo, as gorgeous as it is is almost too conventional for it!! anyway, you have a beauty here. great work amazing dof, great light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2004 01:55:54 PM
The best eye shot I have ever seen, if I could give you 11 I would.
03/25/2004 01:08:07 PM
Nice eye close-up
03/24/2004 08:13:06 PM
Lame title but stupendous photo...
03/24/2004 01:02:11 PM
my only ten so far, very sharp and good dof, lovely colour, love to know how this was done.
03/24/2004 02:14:25 AM
You did an excellent job on this! I looked at the magazines and found this not to be the typical type of photo that they use yet I;m sure they would be tempted with this!
I enjoy seeing post processing that brings out the best in a photo!

Terrific image. I love the way you have blended the skin tones into the negative space. Riveting.

03/23/2004 03:58:42 AM
Totally stunning, best of the challenge. Great use of white space and love the way the eye blends back into it. DOF is perfect, lighting sensational, and a very beautiful eye. Just fabulous! 10

Had never heard of eye magazine (till now). Stunning image, great capture and good post-processing. Hope you do well with it - 9 from me.

Beautiful shot, absolutely stunning and superbly done. I had a rake around the net and the only "eye magazine" I could find was a 1960's youth culture mag. Doesnt seem to fit your image?
03/22/2004 12:23:58 PM
very 'eye' catching!!!!!
03/22/2004 09:30:05 AM
Exceptional! The clarity and composition are noteworthy, and the fade is very well done.
