I used my 50mm f/1.8 lens and Raynox DCR-250 adaptor. The reason the eye has come out so hooded is largely down to the fact that I had my head sideways in a patch of sunlight, trying to make the most of the natural illumination (partly being eco-friendly and partly because I don’t have a decent flash unit!). The resulting light brought out the colours in my iris, which I have enhanced with a few of my regular bag of digital darkroom tricks.
