A few months ago I took a photo of my sister's eye, just for fun at the moment, but I was really interested by it. Although I didn't capture what I expected (everything wasn't as clear/focused as I wished), I still captured a great deal of detail, and last week I decided to photograph some more eyes. These two came out better than the first a few months ago, but I still need a lot more improvement I think.

I really couldn't figure out where to post this, so I just picked this area, not sure if it's appropriate.

I'm looking to get some C&C and advice (or examples) on how to improve them or what I could have done differently. I'm hoping to do a little project where I photograph different people's eyes, and they can write a brief paragraph beginning with "I see..." and just mentioning what they see, whether it be in their daily life, or in life/society/the world overall. Not sure exactly the details yet, but it's just an idea I have.

What I'm aiming for is to capture as much detail in the iris as I can, and make it kind of "dramatic", just something that pops and is interesting. These two that I shot I'm not super satisfied with because I think there's too much reflection.

These were shot in front of a window, with a fan light on, and a lamp. I used the 18-55mm with a Zeiko's "winde angle w/ macro" lens attached to it. Not sure if this is the worst lens to use for this, but it's the only one I have that lets me get the closest to an object.

I'm still very much a beginner so bare with me :o
