Hi Brian,
A fine detail of a horse's eye! Perfect sharpness and good use of shallow DOF. I like the positioning of the eye in the frame, ample space in front and a lovely blurred BG.
Very natural colors.
Well done for this original interpretation of the Them.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hello Bri

A very good detail at that. The eye is sharp as it gets. Well done on the detail.

Hi Brian

Stunning clarity of detail to this eye, the colours are truly amazing, the wispy hairs add much appeal, neat job. TFS

Hi Brian,

I took a 3 day hiatus from posting images but I am back for a trial run. A fantastic close up of the horses eye with a wonderful reflection & very good sharpness. Excellent use of a shallow dof. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

Fantastic "details" and subsequently a well suited contribution to Friday's theme, Brian!
Great sharpness and well shown natural colors with nice management of light and exposure.
Good work!

Have a nice weekend.


Hi Brian
well done! details and DOF are great!

on the flip side... i think that the eye is too much centered. i know that this is the central feature here but from there, shoud we go left and appreciate the DOF effect or to the right and appreciate the details of the horse hair

my humble opinion.


Hi Brian, nice angle to catch the light coming through the eye.you can see the little line around the pupil and the eyelashes reflected. Fiona

Hi Brian...beautiful details and focus. Good job on the composition.


Great shot beautiful details focus and composition.
Have a nice evening , regards
