Challenge: The Eyes Have It! (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Location: London, England
Date: Feb 3, 2008
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 500
Shutter: 1/100
Galleries: Portraiture, Digital Art
Date Uploaded: Feb 4, 2008

Taken looking up at the London Eye. I'd have liked to have got a better angle of the London Eye but that would have meant being on a boat as the far side of the river was just too far away.

Cropped. Then adjusted all the colour saturation values to zero apart from blue and cyan .Increased brightness slightly and USM.

What did I learn from this challenge:
This is the first time I have played with hue/sat or USM and I am quite pleased with the results, only my second entry to DPC and I am already learning new tricks, the tutorial for hue/sat is here and USM is here :)

I'm disappointed at how low this was rated, I think it deserved to be much higher. Great concept and great execution.

I truly think this deserved MUCH MUCH better. A REAL eye picture (not a portrait), very well done hue/saturation, and awesome reflection of another eye, the London Eye. Was a great idea and very well excecuted... definitely, my number 1 here!

Great capture. I think I would have liked it sharpened a little more but you did an amazing job capturing the reflection in the eye.
