I expect this to tank. From idea to posting was 15 minutes. Couldn't bear not having three images to update all week, though. Stuck my face next to some lights, snapped the shutter. +3 EV. Afterwards, upped contrast and used Surface Blur.

Save for web and Bob's your uncle.

Hi, this is a comment from the critique club!

Yes, this is overexposed. But looking at your portfolio I think you can do better ;)

The overexposed part almost has no detail left, while you could've done that and still remaining details. Also the half overexposed - half done right might be a bit too obvious, play with the lights and find out how you can do it in a different way.

The colors of your eyes are great though, they really pop out of the photo. Are they as blue like this in real life too? ;)

Hope this was a little helpful :)

The over exposure gives some great texture and color to the eye on the left.

It's harsh on my eyes too! Seriously, it's a bit much on the right.

Half correct and half overexposed. It would be fussy to say that was absolutely not 'allowed', but it does rather wave at the challenge rather than meeting it.

Surely overexposed, but not to the benefit of the image IMO.
