    Welcome to the forum.

    Nice shot...although the eye is too blue for my liking...but that's OK if you like it.

    Love it!

    What I usually do is make the eyes just barely colored. Just enough so you can barely notice. It adds something nice without too much of a shock.

    Also, Welcome to the forums!
    It's great to have you here! :D

    I like it but she kind of looks like a cyclops.

    Oh crumb, I think my post got lost in cyber space.

    Anyways, what I had said was I liket eh toned down version of the eye, as LittleMan stated it 'adds' to as opposed to takes away from the photo. Would I be able to quickly play with it in photoshop?

    haha, switch.. I could see how you'd think she looks like a cyclops, when i stare at for awhile I guess it's kind of awkard.

    peanuts, feel free to play with it in photoshop! thanks! :)

    Okay, I went way overboard on the burning and dodging - but I started out looking for somewhat of a 'dirty' look. (Hopefully you don't take that as a negative, on certain images it just 'works'). It was kind of an experiment which I am certain could be toned down. I think a mixture of the beginning product and end would be preferably. But in any case, here it is:

    Yes, I should mention the cyclops comment has me seeing it :lol: But I should mention, the overall mood of this shot is excellent, and the bokeh is spectacular!

    wow, I understand what you mean by the 'dirty' look you went for, I think it definitely works for this picture and I love it.. I need to work on my photoshop skills, but you opened my eyes to the possibilities it has.. thanks!!!
