    B. Light Reflecting Off The Retinas
    Explanation
    When people have "red eyes" in photographs, it is caused by light reflecting off their retinas. The retina at the back of the eye is rich in blood vessels, and when a camera flash is used, the light reflects off the blood vessels and creates a red-eye effect. This effect is more pronounced in low-light conditions or when the pupils are dilated. It is not related to the color of the eyes, the quality of the camera, or any defect in the film.

This lens is commonly used in wildlife photography, sports photography, and any situation where the photographer needs to capture subjects that are not easily accessible or are at a significant distance.

This negative can then be used to create positive prints by projecting light through it onto photosensitive paper, resulting in a final image that matches the original scene in terms of tone and contrast.
