    I think I over did the eyes. :D

    I believe that this was just lit with a gold reflector. I was using the Canon 15mm f/2.8 fish. Suuuuuuuuuuper sharp lens and who says distortion is bad for portraiture?

    True, eyes might be a little overdone but it kind of works to draw her out of an otherwise pretty dark (and somewhat busy) image. With her being in the middle of it, the wide angle looks really good too; I don't think the shot would be nearly as interesting without it.

    I like the shot, but the eyes are really over done. I also think the image is overly distorted, it makes her head look fat.

    Ok, I was kidding on the second sentence.

    :D

    I don't find any problem with the distortion, but the eyes almost make her look possessed! :lol:

    Cool shot though. :thumbup:

    the pic is superfine, but out of the great area covered, the blued eyes distract.....are they focal point?....they reduce the face value, which is focal point.

    Wow, was this taken on Arrakis? :lol:


    It is kinda cool, but I'm still not sure about the eyes.

    I like the shot but those eyes are waaaaay too unnatural.
