Hello Wetpixel Community,

i think its a question of faith but what would you do? PS or not?

In the eye my strobes are reflecting. I like this effect because i take this shot from a very short distance and so the retina seems like a mirror.

Thanks for the feedback!

The reflection is real. Keep it!

Only another Wetpixie would even notice that it's a result of photographic technique and not natural light. I like it!

I like the reflection. The only PS I'd do would be whatever enhances the reflection...nice!

I really like the lightening of the photo, but I probably would have PS'ed the reflections, would look a lot cleaner.
