Is it in the Eyes?

This week's Gallery is Eyes

Some people say that it's all in the eyes, I don't think so.
An eye alone may convey life but not the emotion within. 

We  can look at the whole face but a dead pan look with eyes averted also says nothing except 'alive and breathing'.
I can read the emotion in this face despite the eyes being averted, so is it in the eyes?

I think the overall emotion actually comes from the face muscles around the eyes and mouth.  You can force a smile but it doesn't pull the eyes the way a true smile does.  The micro expressions we pick up on are very subtle but tend to be based around  the movements in the facial muscles that may lift a lip or eyebrow.  The eyes can't do it alone.
