Or, perhaps, Eye Love Orange would be a better title.
Taken this morning in (Sunday) in Omaha.
Woah! Nice shot! Does his eye really look like that??? It looks....otherworldly...
The only PP done to it was cropping just a SLIGHT bit in Capture NX.
D300, 105mm f/2.8 VR Macro, ISO 800, f/16. 1/60th.
Oh, I wasn't suggesting you had manipulated the image! Just commenting on how unbelievably awesome that looks. And slightly creepy.
The biggest problem with getting this shot is that I was shooting through WET glass... that adds a whole new level of difficulty. You can see some of the deformations from the water droplets in the lower left corner, I had to wait until he ducked down through a relatively dry spot on the glass before I could shoot it.
I used a higher ISO because the D300 has insane high ISO performance, which allows me to use less flash causing a lot less glare on glass while still getting a lot of depth of field.
I am anxious to try out my new ring flash, but they are useless in the extreme when shooting through glass... waiting for flowers and bugs!
great shot!!! i love the eyes. thanks fro sharing
Holy Sharpness, Batman! You can even see all the tiny little veins in the eye!! [And the hint of lipgloss must drive all the boy lizards crazy.]
