Bit of an abstract shot. I've done a lot of post on this image to bring the sharpness up in the eye, but it is one shot, no layers, no HDR. Comments welcome.

Needs to be a little cleaner. There is blue where blue should not be like on the white of the eye. Also I would get rid of the dirt on the face as this is a distraction since you clearly want the eye to be the main focal point. Just my 2¢.

Yes that small reflection of blue is a bit annoying I agree, might give that a once over.

Good point about the dirt on the face, it does become a distraction if you're viewing the image 1:1 or larger, I didn't want to soften and clean up the skin too much in case I lost the hard contrast look of the image.

Thanks for the critique. It's appreciated :)
