excellent image, love the angle and the paint texture, i think the centre of the eye could be lightened a tad just for a bit more impact...well imo...lol

Mesmorising. I think the crop and position is brave, colour saturation enhances the result and the shallow dof draw attention to the eye to give us a photo with bags of impact that sits well on the black background.

The Edinburgh Festival starts shortly, and this kind of image could be used to promote one of the shows. So you get an EF award as well !!
Nice work.

Your dad doesn't look so good today.

A great and very brave image with oodles of impact. How many of us would ever think of doing a one eyed portrait and turning it on its side.....not mant of us I bet. Well done Andrew.. what a very talented family.
