    Please critique this.. I want to get better with eyes.. Do they pop? Do they pop to much which makes them look fake? Any suggestions?

    Well I am a beginner so not sure if my opinion counts, but I love the eyes! What did you do?

    BTW I am jealous, I have THREE kids and all of them got their daddy's brown eyes!

    The angle given (both as in "POV" = point of view and as in wide-angle of the lens), the eyes show very, very prominently, anyway.

    I assume you brightened and sharpened them selectively?
    I have forever wondered if that is what TheBeginning and newrmdmike are doing to the photos of the people they photograph? I think, it is the very thing...

    Maybe here they are just a smidge too sharp, but other than that, for us who we don't know the original it seems to work all right.
