Looking into my soul by laetitiapetrussa

Looking into my soul

This is what I was going for. An intense staring look. I also caught a bit of iridescence on the scale.

I noticed the reflective strands above the bumpy surface of the iris and the crack in the cornea. It's very different from any other eye. I think I'm going to start a collection of macro eye photos.

As with human eyes it works best with side lighting, and since I need to work with natural light, I had to be patient. What do you think?
Amazing! FAV

Incredible close up and so sharp. Like I'm looking right into its eye
March 6th, 2015  
Super-cool, Laetitia!

So it is "snake eye" like with the dice?haha I did not feel scared as many did. I have two pet crested geckos for pets. Their eyes are similar and I love to take macros of their eyes, scales, feet, those retractable claws, etc... Fav
March 6th, 2015  
Wonderful textures and light... your details are really excellent. A really compelling photo. :)
March 6th, 2015  
This is quite special, excellent shot!
March 6th, 2015  
Hard to believe there is so much to see in an eye. Fantastic shot!
March 6th, 2015  
@stiggle Eyes can be pretty intriguing, Anja, once you get relly close to them. And each one is unique.
March 6th, 2015  
@espyetta Thanks, MaryBeth, for the comment and the fav! I love geckos too, but I chose for the lowest maintenance option. I'd love to see some more toe pads and eye macros in your project, they are even more ornate than a snake's eye! Tag me next time so I can't miss it :-)

@leephotoofyork @nicknac @rosiekerr @hasselhotch Thank you so much guys for commenting and faving! I see my shot made it to the PP. That's always really exciting. Even if it only lasts a minute. I do love making macros. And I tried many different positions relative to the window until I found the best light. It's not that easy with a self-willed, super strong reptilian!
March 6th, 2015  
@laetitiapetrussa I will do that! They are cute little critters!
March 6th, 2015  
Very cool capture! Fav
