I can't help but think this would have been better if it were the other eye and your nose were on the left side of the image with the makeup reverse so that it would be oriented the same way in the picture. Hope that made sense, lol.
I totally understand what you're saying! I had thought about it, but the camera shake had caused a little too much blur for my liking, it kind of put me off for some reason. Although I think it would have looked a lot more interesting had I manipulated it.
Wow. This is really powerful. I mean, I looked at this and actually felt a little scared, haha. The colors work together very well, too. The clear, detailed reflection in the iris really adds a...dramatic...almost shocking quality.
