nice closeup.. the only thing i would do is crop a bit off the right hand side to better emphasize the eye and crop off the blur a bit.. mb just a bit off the top too.. but this is a nice closeup and you got a good focal point on the eye..

thanks for sharing..

looking at these shots, i knew you had to have used anice truemacro lens to get that close and to have them turn out that sharp.. so i was just wondering which one you were using..

that canon is a nice lens and i wouldnt mind having one.. not only for the macros, but it is also a very good portrait lens.. particularly for head shots..

i think that 100 2.8 will be useful for that wedding to get in close for some of the candids, and during the ceremony so you can get some good shots without being in the way...

Nice macro. The DOF to the right does have some dropoff though. Adds to the shot in my opinion. I just wanted to point that out since some people like things always sharp.
