  1. My first thought was “white tiger eye closeup”…….

  2. Really nice. Who would have thought to desaturate something so naturally full of color? The counterintuitive nature of the treatment is what really makes this image. And you’ve also done a double-twist by presenting something so symmetrical in an asymmetric manner. This is so cool. You know, I took a quick look at the post very early this morning and then had to go out to do a few things. I was driving home and remembered that I had to respond to your post … it was very easy to remember the image … unforgettable. I can see it, enlarged, in a minimally-appointed living room … on a blank, white, wall. Very cool indeed. D

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a monochrome rendition of the eye in a peacock feather–what a terrific idea, and what a striking image you’ve created!

  6. I wonder how a pea hen would react to this.

  9. It’s just absolutely beautiful! I love it. The shading, the tones, everything is perfect here. There is even a hint of color around the eye! Impressive, Lemons! 🙂

    • I’m so glad you like it, George. I’m also glad that the bit of color comes through. I was afraid I might have toned it down just a bit too much. 🙂 I’m still experimenting with the others. 😉
