Kinda a last minute job, don't expect an awful lot from this.

Desaturated most/Adjusted brightness of iris.

Cloned out imperfections on mask.

Setup was a lightbulb on a cord, pointed at model on bed with dark sheets.

Love it. I might have liked the focus on the eye better, I'm not sure. But I do love it the way it is.

Nice idea however I find given the centering and the focal point that my eye is drawn to the nostril hole on the mask. Would have been a lot stronger for me if the focus was on the eye. I like the selective desaturation that makes the eye color pop.

It's a neat photo overall but the eye looks very plastic. The lighting is spot on though

interesting idea.

I'm not sure the crop quite works for me as the triangle of skin (bottom right) distracts rather than adds to the picture - the face probably needs to be slightly more upright.

I like the simple color scheme with the added eye color.
