    My beautiful wife was generous to pose for a picture or two the other day. I really wanted to capture her eyes since I have never had success with this in the past. This was the outcome.

    I can see why you would want to capture her eyes! Your wife has beautiful eyes and photographs well.

    I think it is a cool shot with you reflecting in her eye like that. I like it on an emotional/relationship level because of what it says about you and her together, you being the object of her focus while you are "focusing" on her.
    But I also found your reflection a little distracting on a strictly technical basis.

    I think it works for me overall and is a shot worth putting on my list of shots I would like to try.

    The cropped shot is pretty cool, almost scary the way the lens is almost popping out of her eye.

    The title of your thread goes well with the theme of the shots.

    I have a vintage filter premade that I used for that one. I think it turned out especially well on that particular picture. I dodged and burned the eye just slightly.
