"Your all I see, because your all that matters to me..."

This is an image of my partner, my other half and the apple of my eye. I wanted to re create the way he feels about me. I made only the eye in colour to show his brilliant vibrant colour in the deep tones of his eye by increasing the contrast, I then added an image of myself inside his eye. I have always wanted to create something like to this. I was only able to do this with finding two images that went well together. The meaning behind this image is to show his perseverance in achieving what he wants and what he sees. This determination to fight for what he sees can only be described in one word - Love.

How did you get the eyes so reflective or is it a composite?

Inspiration
This is an image of my partner, my other half and the apple of my eye. I wanted to re create the way he feels about me. I made only the eye in colour to show his brilliant vibrant colour in the deep tones of his eye by increasing the contrast, I then added an image of myself inside his eye. I have always wanted to create something like to this. I was only able to do this with finding two images that went well together. The meaning behind this image is to show his perseverance in achieving what he wants and what he sees. This determination to fight for what he sees can only be described in one word - Love.
Editing
I increased the contrast of the eye, left only the eye in colour to bring out vibrance in the deep tones of the eye, then I added another image inside the eye of myself. I blurred the corners of the second image to blend the two images together.
In my camera bag
Just my camera.
Feedback
The key to achieving images like sure is making sure you have the right images to blend, I tried to remake this image using my other images, but i couldn't. I did not use photoshop for this image, I used high quality free editing software downloaded from google. You don't need lots of money for images like this when if you have a certain amount of free editing software, you can do almost as much as photoshop. I have a total of four free editing software, only 2 of which i use regularly.
