I really liked the colours in this shot. The meaning of this shot was that fear is in the eye of the beholder, you cant make out whats in the pupil because its not your fear! Deep yeah?

It was probably the effect you wanted, but its just too red for me. Kinda grosses me out instead of showing me 'fear'. :(

The colors are WAY oversaturated

The eye is excellent, but the rest of the face is discolored and distracting. I think it would be more effective if it was toned down a bit.

The iris/pupil and red around the eye is dramatic, but I don't like the yellow-ish tinge to the skin. Detracts from the eye. I looked at this all week to try to understand how I feel about it... now Sat. night, and I still don't have any useful comment, except that, and also the focus could be a bit sharper.

ugh. very very reddish. somehoe this photo looks like one of these pictures in learning books for doctors. i would have done the following: in your photo editor desaturate all reddish tones and only leave the blue ones (blue, cyan). this would have the interesting effect of having the nice blue pupill without the strong red tones, ephasizing the eye more.

not that scared... a reflection on your eyes onto something scary would be a good twist on this

very strange. the freckles and the shine on the skin under the eye are a little distracting.
07/12/2002 11:23:00 AM
The colors are a bit saturated. The concept of the photo is good, BW would may of been more dramatic.

the lousy skin tone is distracting. When I got past that and looked at the eyeball, I was curious as to how you got that image on the pupil. Very strange.

I like the shot of the iris and pupil, the rest of the coloring on the face is too harsh for my taste, sorry. A little cloudy on what the fear is, in the eye - is the white shape in the pupil an object?, sorry unable to tell on my monitor.

Looks more like sorrow to me
07/11/2002 01:48:00 PM
good close-up
07/11/2002 11:33:00 AM
I am pretty sure that it was done intentionally, but the red color cast does nothing for this photo in my opinion.

Cool image in the pupil. What happened to the skin tone? wierd. Good close up. 7 Swash

Weird catchlights in there. Not sure of the reason behind the way oversaturated skin tones...it's not really attractive and I think it sort of detracts from looking at the eye, which is the subject.
07/09/2002 08:55:00 PM
now, that is fear in my book
07/09/2002 04:47:00 PM

07/09/2002 11:41:00 AM
The color on this is nasty
07/09/2002 04:10:00 AM
sorry sir... i see no fear in the eye
07/08/2002 09:00:00 PM
good shot :) I am trying to figger out what the reflection in the eyeball is coming from.. the odd shaped light works well :) = 7 - jmsetzler
07/08/2002 08:04:00 PM
I like your idea, but I think the fact that the colors have too much red, and too much saturation lessens it's impact. Shey.
07/08/2002 05:45:00 PM
Sorry, but I don't recognize what's in the eye
07/08/2002 05:06:00 PM
Sorry, I don't see fear in this eye.
07/08/2002 02:50:00 PM
Neat iris, have to know how you did that.A little too much color though,otherwise good pix.
07/08/2002 12:23:00 PM
That is some wild colors you've done there - intentional? I almost think a different perspective would make it more interesting, and I'm having a hard time seeing what is going on with the pupil/iris. Looks different, but I can't hardly tell how. karmat

cool! : )
07/08/2002 01:01:00 AM
I just don't see fear. I am wondering how you got the pupil this way and the yellow places with the red tones.
