    It is a first - and it was testing - and the lens is all new, right?
    Well, so this could happen, but in general I think that with a close-up of someone's eye not the eyelashes but the iris should be in focus, more so if that part is being highlighted by selective colouring. In your avatar, at that tiny size, it is no longer noticeable. But the large photo makes it quite obvious.
    Though the lashes show VERY clearly, and in case this was handheld I must say "Congratulations".

    LOL yeah. It was from the first roll of macro, new lens. Color film, and used Picasa for the B&W.No, it wasnt handheld, just that my subject was drinking and couldnt stand still,lol. I was TRYING for the iris, and thought I had it, till it got developed,lol. It was kinda hard lighting the face with a flashlight, and focusing at the same time. Thanks for the reply :)

    I agree.
    Would be great shot if it was the actual eye in focus. Keep trying and you'll sort it soon.
    I have the same problem trying to get it lite correctly and have fast enough shutter speed to avoid blur. :)
