When I found this in a little pond with red mud I realized it gives a nice color combination. So decided to make some very close macro just focussing on its eye. I think popping eye with a star in it which resulted from very shallow focus combined with interesting colors gives it a unique feel.

Details - Nikon D200, Nikon 105mm f2.8 Micro lens plus 87mm extension tube, cropped for composition.

This is one of the best images in your kitty Ganesh. I keep visiting this image very often. I had seen a similar image made my Frans Lanting as well. The DOF, starry sun and the position of the eye in the frame - everything falls at the right place.

One image which will make me come back over again. The placement of the eye in the frame is really captivating.

Superb image. The glitter in the eye and the colours are just perfect. Reminds me of a few more images of yours.

What a killer shot Ganesh. I just love the details and the sparkle in the eye. The DOF in my opinion is falling a little short on the eye, would have loved to see the whole eye in focus. But the image still has a very powerful punch!
