    Did you cast it upon the hobbitses?

    Just to be pedantic … the Great Eye is, of course, famous in The Lord of the Rings; but I don’t remember it ever being mentioned in The Hobbit (although it is far too many years since I last read the book).

    The focal point seems to be left of centre.

    It isn’t, though Sauron does make a brief appearance to his butt kicked by Gandalf in Mirkwood who then flees to Mordor.

    Interesting self-reference though by David Farrar – though from Labour’s and the Greens’ point of view he’s probably more of a Ringwraith.

    DPF is a bit player; maybe he could be Master of Laketown.

    Is there a security system somewhere that will give you access if you use this photo at real size?

    You can tell a lot about someones health by looking at their retina. Diabetes and hypertension is often very evident. At least DPF there is very little sign of glaucoma.

    [DPF: Which is what the test was for, and yes no signs thankfully]

    Gadzooks Batman, I think we’ve just stumbled upon a means to bypass that tricky biometric locking system and gain access to the Penguin’s Secret Lair!
    :-D

    Whew! That eye. I was shocked for a moment there.

    More diligence from the sub-editor might be in order.

    34KB? You might consider posting a higher resolution scan for the detail people.

    That’s a healthy retina. Mine’s got little scars all over it from where they had to fuse my retina back onto the back of my eyeball.

    These are a couple of views off to the side, luckily for me it was caught before it reached the central part of my vision.
