    Anything is possible... However i do understand why you are skeptical about this photos legitimacy. To me it looks processed...

    lol who's eye is that, they look baked.

    It's just sharpened. They really DO look like that up close. It's kinda creepy.

    I'm a believer...just took a picture of my eye...kinda hard to know if its in focus when I have the camera pointed at my eye but one turned out decent enough to see that they really do look like that,....thanks for sharing this and "opening my eyes"

    To prove it, here's that photo that turned out...remember...I put my P&S on Macro turned the lens towards my eye and without seeing whether is was in focus or not, captured this:

    I'm pretty sure the photo you posted was post-processed in some fashion to "dramatify" the look, but the actual lines like that are definitely there...wee...that was fun.

    its just hard to imagine walking down the street and suddenly seeing those eyes looking at you. I mean i always thought blue eyes with that dark blue border are the most beautiful eyes colors but this takes the cake for sure.

    Gah I've got to try this now! Eyes are suddenly far more interesting again!

    ps I'm sure my sister will hate you now (I can't do it to myself the lens I'm going to use has no AF what so ever to get a lock on so it needs someone behind the camera to set it off.

    edit = on the editing front I suspect its a small aperture mixed with contrast and probably highpass sharpening to get a deeper look into the structure. Also I suspect its greater than 1:1 macro - so could be any kind of reversed lens; diopter; extension tubes or even the MPE being used.
