Challenge has finished
Many say that the eyes are the mirror of the soul, but facial expressions can be very powerful when people close their eyes, and many classical photos prove it beyond any doubts. Please submit thoughtful portraits of people with their eyes closed (but not sleeping). It can be a moment your subject blinked, or thought of something with intensity, or expressed a moment of introspection or peace, or just closed his or or her eyes because you asked them to. Please read the additional rules carefully. Images that depart from the rules will be disqualified.
