    I like the reflection you got... I didn't appreciate it as much until I tried it myself :) It wasn't easy for me to get a recognizable, clear reflection. Yours looks very clear. Good job ...

    Thanks. I think the trick is to have your subject inside looking out at a bright scene. My daughter was 3 feet from a window but the outside light was fading fast so I had to use off-camera flash.

    Hi everyone,
    This is a little late, but I did take this photo with this assignment in mind. I'm just now getting a chance to get this up.

    Welcome to Dgrin Academy!

    Nice entry, thanks!

    One thing I noticed - the image looks very soft and slightly OOF (Out Of Focus). This is probably because you shot wide opn from a close distance and basically focused at the pupil center. DOF (Depth Of Field) is assymetrical, it's usually twice as long furhter from the focus plane that before it:
    <)
    [====*========]
    Legend:
    <) camera
    ---[, ]--- OOF (Out Of Focus) area
    [==... ==] DOF (Depth of Field)
    [== front focused area
    * focus point (target)
    ==] back focused area
    I would suggest to use a longer (telephoto) lens and shoot from a greater distance (thus getting a slightly greater DOF), otherwise focus on the end of the eyelashes.

    HTH

    I think it is a little soft, too. I was trying to capture the wrinkled skin around her eyes. I should probably have focused on the eyeball instead?ne_nau.gif

    hi! i really like this picture of the (peacock?) eye but i agree that the focus has to be on the eye or somewhere where the eye is in the same focal plane as the focuspoint. nice try and try to shoot it again if possible clap.gif

    Thanks, Chrissiebeez. The bird is a Black Headed Caique. I'm gonna have to do some more shooting when I can get her to stay still. Here's some info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black-headed_Parrot

    Thank you for your entry! thumb.gif
    I would recrop it (too much of a "face-space" IMHO) and probably try a high contrast BW conversion. deal.gif

    Hi Dave!
    Please look at these:
    "The idea is to get an eye to fill as large part of the frame as possible. Watch for your own (and camera's) reflection - you may or may not like how it looks."
    and tell me if it's close or not. mwink.gif
