Compelling Eye's

By Lillian  
Another from Venice last year....
These images have made me not only feeling sad that I am not there at this moment
but annoyed with myself for not making the time to have processed them, but
in my own defence I did take over 3000 photos. Wink

Thank You everyone for those lovely comments and glad that you are looking forward
to this mini series of colour.
All hand held and with my 60D

Love the angle of the head in the frame and the colourful eye shadow which is set off well by the white mask

Yes, it all about the eyes and their spectral eyelash colouring: wonderful portrait of this masked participant.
3000 images, Lillian.........would take me a few years to take that many.
7 Feb 2013 8:41AM
An excellent, full-on image, Lillian!
And yes, those eyes really are compelling!
3000 images would have been over 80 rolls of 36 exposure film!!Wink
