Jenn at Wit’s End Travel has a thoughtful article and challenge about eyes. This has made me really conscious of eyes as I have both taken and post processed pictures this past week.
I was really surprised at how much difference a single eye can make to a picture. Great Blue here is trying to keep warm in a tree. I’m not sure why s/he (I don’t know how to tell with herons) popped an eye out to see what was going on.
I really noticed that the direction the eyes point give a lot of the meaning in a photo. Examples of this below.
Even at that there is something nice about pictures where the eyes are on the camera.
