    Nice work Kanikula! I like the focus and processing on the eyes. The only thing I would work on a little more is the skin tone. Its seems a bit too yellow in some of them.

    Overall, great job. Thanks for sharing! :)

    The best way to adjust skin tone is to shoot in RAW format, and then play with the white balance and color temperature in post processing.

    If you are shooting JPEG only, you can make a lasso selection roughly around the parts of the subject's skin, then do a layer adjustment of Hue/Saturation, and selectively reduce the amount of the yellow channel in that adjustment layer. It might be -10 or as much as -20 or -30, whatever you are happy with. You may also want to adjust the Red channel a bit as well. Then, when you are happy with the results, flatten the layer and save.

    To get good accurate skin tone, I usually have a sample pic on hand that I use for reference, which I know is the skin tone Im looking for. It helps me be consistent with skin tone color.

    If you want more detail on the process I use, just let me know. I'd be happy to share. :)
