As somebody who didn't even know she had hazel eyes, I'm rather excited to be part of this little club.

Also, __jess wins for sheer amazing, but I am stunned at how beautiful everyone's eyes are. I think I need to start looking closer at everyone. I have been missing out on all this loveliness.

I suspect little photoshop, it was probably just a photo taken with a black background and the proper lighting/angle.

Eh, why not. Just another person with brown eyes anyway (and no idea how to properly light a picture):

I've been told my lashes are long-ish... wouldn't know about that but they do fall into my eyes all the time, couldn't be more annoying.

Edit: Jacque and MJ, your eyes are the sh#t. Also, I've been looking at the other pictures and was reminded of just how much I envy people with blue eyes. Even though in my case green would look better.

How did you do that? My Photoshop skills are primitive.

Do what? I don't think I shopped that at all, just added a border and maybe reduced the saturation a tiny bit. The background is dark because I was using a simple flash and no other light (my good camera was broken, this was taken with a normal digital camera). If I was actually going to use it for anything I'd need to reshoot because the skin in front of my eye is blown out, but I can't be bothered.

Wow, someguy, novax6 and MJ, the patterns in your eyes are amazing. I am definitely going to have to try and do some photography of eyes properly, I've never noticed how intricate the colours are.

That is a really neat looking eye. It still looks orange-ish to me. It almost looks like a feather pattern in your eye with the thin lines moving out from the center. Very delicate looking in a cool way.

It was the first thing that popped into my brain - I just see weird things like that I guess :P Do they move around at all as your pupil size is changed? Then it would really be like those static electricity sphere thingies.

When the pupil is tiny the stringy bits are really obvious, but they sort of become hard to see when I have a large pupil.

So many people have pretty eyes. Or maybe I just like eyes. Also a possibility. Ok here are mine.

A kinda dark brownish colour. They look more green sometimes though, oddly enough if I cry they look greener O_o. They always, always look dark, no matter the light. I quite like them ^_^
I remember asking my mum of they were hazel or brown when I was a kid, and decided on brown as a girl I didn't like had hazel eyes XD.

...and that would be why I am scared shitless of birds.

One time, I accidentally stabbed myself in the eye with a toothpick because I was all loopy on meds for Lyme disease. I work with kids, so when they asked me what happened I just told them that I fought a lion. I wore sunglasses through most of it, though...

Another time during that..erm...healing process, some kids were trying to catch bugs and managed to knock my aviators off. They were jerky kids who didn't know about my eye, so I decided to cover it and pretend to cry while yelling "ahhhh you got my eye!!!"... When they came over to look, I opened it extra wide, stuck my tongue out, and made "LALALLALA" noises. (They were 10 or 11 year old boys and very insensitive, so it was okay. I'm really not THAT terrible of a person.)

It looks like I have brown eyes here, but that's just the light. My eye color tends to vary between a blueish gray, to a deeper blue, to a little bit of green.

A friend of mine kneed herself in the eye while on a horizontal bungee-jump at our school's Spring Fair. She fractured the inner wall of the socket, the broken bone pinching her optic muscle. She had to be taken in for surgery, and cried blood for the next couple of days. I'll see if I can obtain a photo of these proceedings from her tomorrow.

They lied in grade school biology. My mom is genetically Chinese, and my dad has blue eyes. Homozygous brown + homozygous blue means heterozygous brown and blue, brown is dominant so I should have my mother's Chinese dark brown eyes. But they're only partly brown. It's a little more complicated than your teachers told you...

Yeah they usually elaborate a little in high school biology and teach how there's multiple alleles for eye color so it's not so simple as dominant and recessive, it becomes more of a mix. Like what usually happens with skin color.

The whole "dominant and recessive" thing is pretty much an elaborate case of lying to children. Genes don't actually work anything like that.

(Of course, no one really knows how they work at all, exactly... But teachers aren't allowed to admit that.)
