Default A Different Kind Of Sunrise

This is a concept that struck me earlier today. Not too complex, it took me a bit to figure out the "mushroom cloud" reflection in the eye. The "eye model" is my roommate. The end result wasn't quite what I pictured in my mind, but oh well.

I think I was inspired from watching too much Jericho lately.

Thanks for looking, and critique away!

Sorry but; " yuck ".... Maybe including both eyes for a perspective.

"Yuck"...very constructive term.

Beyond that I sort of agree, maybe not the other eye, but there is more to the left of the photo, I think I'll include that.

I wouldnt say yuch. What him me the most was the missing pupil. Other than that I found myself looking into the eye to see what I was looking at. Its not a wall hanger in my view as are most of the pics for the challenge. But its a good job pp. Nice focusing but due to the skin pores Id do some corrective surgery so the main focus is on the eye.

Thanks for the actual constructive criticism and critiques, Bynx. I agree with what you say, and I really like the edit you did.

I wasn't really going for a "wall hanger" though, anyhow. As with most of the crap I cook up in photoshop, it's more just practice and to get better with it. Sort of just seeing if I can pull off stuff. Afterall, I post them here trying to get advice and not an art gallery.

Well Jerolin its funny how sometimes goofing around can come up with some pretty good stuff. If you always try for the best then when you fall short its still really good compared to aiming low and falling short. By the way, how many roomies do you have? I checked out your deviant art site and recognized a few of your shots. The eye posted here doesnt belong to your cute roomie on your site.

I have two roommates, they're a married couple. The eye belongs to the "cute roomie's" husband. They're both about to move out in January though, they're both joining the Army.

Sort of sucks, now I have to find new roommates who don't mind me experimenting on them....photographically of course!
