Both images are sharp but the first is significantly overexposed to the point of blown highlights on much of the detail. You need to reduce the light or reduce the exposure by either using a smaller aperture or faster shutter speed. Also, I suspect the white balance is off a bit in the first. It looks as if the lighting were incandescant and the WB set for sunlight.

The second image is perfect.

The eye details are revealing.

Good work

Cool eye photo. I was trying to take ones of my bunnies eyes last night. But, they weren't being very cooperative. Tried again a little this morning, but not sure how they came out yet.

Good capture on both of your images.

I hear you Cal. That's the best of 25 attempts. If you can figure out how to light your own eye when it's less that a quarter inch from the lens, let me know. I wish I had a picture of me trying it, to post in the funny pictures forum. :lol: I originally intended to post a tight crop of just the iris and let you guess what it was but it would have been a 100% crop and it was a little noisy. After all those attempts I was determined to post it. That's when I got the idea to do the juxtaposition with the camera lens.
