The Ophthalmologist is a wonderful entry into Your Occupation II. I remember seeing the shot when voting and thought it would score higher, because it was something just a little bit different from the norm.

I really like the placement of the subject, it is great that your faced is centered especially with this type of shot. The coloring and focus look really good. This is awesome that you were able to accomplish in between patients. The contrast in green and red on your face is wonderful, as opposed to just using the letters. The only thing I would change would be to leave a little more room on top. It feels a little crowded because your hair is cut off.

Overall this is an excellent piece, something I would be extremely proud of. Nice job and I look forward to your future entries.

Excellent idea and execution! Just needs a little more sharpness, I think.

Interesting concept. Nice backlighting.

I wonder whether having the red-green boundary run down the middle of the face would have worked better, or if it would have been too symmetrical. also, maybe having the central red & green stripes running directly over the eyes.

I like this concept, very nice. The look of massive worry with the piercing blue eyes is great. Nice job.
