Interesting detail shot! Nice use of selective desat.

Good clarity and the youthful face is lit nicely (sometimes a close-up like this only reveals flaws). I think the reflection in the eye catches the attention, not sure if that was your goal or not.

Don't like the reflection in the eye - otherwise very nice - can even see the "folds" in the pupil.

Great detail, good job on the selective desaturation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:12:45 PM
would rather you were "squared" to your subject a bit more
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 08:24:23 PM
Nice sharp shot. good use of desat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 07:53:39 PM
great tones in the B&W and nice selective coloring. I just wish the eyebrow was neater
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 07:29:50 PM
Cool desat but the brown in the eye kind of has a red tint - is that the natural color?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:38:52 PM
Nice saturation to bring out the eye. Good detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:13:54 PM
lovely focus and detail :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:21:51 PM
the catch light is very interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:58:52 PM
Lovely eye. The eyebrow is a little wild and OOF, though, which detracts from the rest of the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:54:44 PM
might have cropped a bit off the top and bottom, but its still lovely. pretty color in the eye
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:46:29 AM
Good focus on the eye here. Lovely detail and good use of selective desat. The color in the eye is wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:31:53 AM
the eye is perfect, the eyebrow takes a bit too much room and attention
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 09:19:05 AM
cool desat and great catch in the eyes, well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 05:59:05 AM

too bad about the reflectons - good image nevertheless
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:38:15 AM
Well composed. Selective desat works. Comp good. Arresting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:36:39 PM
Great focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:14:05 PM
Nice eye. I like the desaturation, the brightness and the details. Just puzzling what I see in the reflection.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 05:19:11 PM
Good but the veins distract too much for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 05:04:43 PM
I don't know if I'm more mesmerized by the eye or by the shape whithin the catchlight in the eye. Perhaps that was the goal... if so it worked wonderfully. If not, you need to watch the catchlights and you got a bump in your score for a cool mistake :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 03:53:46 PM
great detail!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 02:42:33 PM
very well composed image selective desat works very well here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 02:12:04 PM
Fantastic, I'm not usually a fan of one-eye shots, but the selective desat on this and the detail and clarity of the eye really make this pop. Great contrast, the tones are so nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:11:20 PM
Nice sharp focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 12:14:58 PM
Absolutely beautiful eye. Great details and an effective desat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:34:28 PM
I've seen many photos like this and they're usually way overdone, but this is very soft and simple. Good balance between the iris and the rest of the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:38:33 PM
I like how the reflection could be eyelashes or trees above what appears to be a house.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:08:18 PM
Very engaging shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:30:51 AM
a window into the soul! effective use of selective desat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the reflection in the eye!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:42:50 AM
nice sharp focus on the eye
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:11:32 AM
Great use of selective desat, I think it would have worked even better with a green or blue eye, (my taste I guess). DOF is very shallow, I would prefer the eye brow in focus. Best of luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:47:23 AM
I really like this shot! The only thing I think *might* have made it even better would be to see the entire eye in colour (so we could see the red lines and etc). I still really like it, though. I like the pun title as well (is it your eye?).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:06:05 AM
May have been better in ladscape as this would give a diagonal
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:50:57 AM
Love the color of his/her eye..I like the veins in the white of the eye as well..
