Photoshop Experiement

By Bowley
The actul picture is nothing special taken on a sony compact a while ago. But i have this great image on my desktop with a simlar thing with the eye.

First i duplicated the eye, then did all the black and white stuff to the orignal, tidyed it up, noise reduction etc.

Then uped expose amd curve the eye

i then selected half the eye (going around the pupil) and did a mixture of channel mixture and Hue satuation to get the half and half colour. then did the same for the other half.

Im quite happy with the result for a first attempt but how can i make it better?

This is wonderful, tried this myself a little while ago but am a novice at photoshop. Like the angle of the eye

your treatment is first class!
All it needs is a direct and brutal crop on right hand side by the tearduct?

dont get hung on formats like 6*4 etc , all thirds fall in anything if you get smart !

hope that helps ,

to be brutal, what it really needs is some sharpness. Nothing in the shot is sharp, treatment is ok, given the style the large areas with little detail are ok. I wonder whether the other eye would have been better, so the tear duct is pointing down rather than up? hmmm.

no ! thats your vision , otherwise you invite other interpretations ,

A framing thought would be to have the image quite small in a big frame ?
