    That's a fun shot. Did you add extra blue to the eyes? It's usually tough to see blue against gray.

    its absolutely horrendous, the babe is cute, but this type of selective coloring is simply awful. H

    can you desat that blue a bit and post one, or maybe one without the selective coloring?...and the line in the pupil bothers me too...
    im with flash harry on this one...the blue is rather shocking and totally unnatural in an otherwise cute shot.

    I find the blue is way too saturated to look natural.

    Selective colouring is way overdone these days and I find having it in your picture takes away from what is a great B&W portrait.

    Thumbs up for the portrait
    Thumbs down for the blue eyes
