Daily Deviation

Given 2010-05-22
Suggester says: "I've never seen such genius reflection captured in one's eye - especially in photography - and particularly, in greyscale. It's an exciting mix of soft background, strong clear eyelashes and surreal reflection - harsh, glassy, industrial-ish, sharp as a knife. Note how the eyeball part seems as it doesn't belong in this photo - exceptional focus. There's also the direction of the stare and a bit of evilness in it..." eyes lose their fire by *appleplusskeleton ( Suggested by neodecay and Featured by impressionenmeer )

I think it’s easy to see why this is a daily deviation. It is in a word incredible. “The eyes lose their fire” It describes it perfectly. Looking at that eye is like looking into a still pool undisturbed, the thoughts and emotions quiet and hidden. Like the fish underneath, they swim and live and feed. They reflect the world, but are not quite a part of it. The strangest thing for me is that looking into that eye I feel like I can know everything about this person and yet nothing. The eyes speak, yet they are silent except to those who can hear their song. A strange melody to chase, but a sublime end to the journey. The eyes have lost their fire. The spark is submerged again. But it still waits to burn again. If only the kindling can be found.
I don’t think I can say enough how amazing this mage is to look at. The sharpness of the detail and depth of the dark tones is truly wonderful to behold. The long lashes frame that liquid orb so perfectly. Like the open gates to a fortress, spread wide for a little while letting the light in. And then in that moment, perhaps… if you are very lucky, you can see something breathtaking. And that’s what I see here.

Outstanding. :clap:
