    Is this photo too symmetrical? (considering there is a line almost straight down the center) Does the selective coloring work in this photo?

    I like it but think it would be cool too to also deselect the whites of the eyes. Then not only will you have lines up and down, but 1/2 side to side as well. Might make it even more interesting.
    Overall though, I really like this.

    i think your composition is fine, but i'd like to see it in full color. elsaspet had a nice suggestion about the whites of the eyes, that might do the trick. I'm not really a selective coloring person though, so i might be a tad biased against it :D

    i dont like selective coloring usually, and i think here it would work best if you left only the iris colored.

    i agree with you, fury. i like your edited version alot, i think if you added a little bit more highlight contrast you'd have it!

    maybe if only the iris and eye lid were color, the part between the brow and lid is too distracting for my taste

    keep it all color. the focus is on the eye no matter if it is selective color or not, so for me i would rather it just all be color or all b/w. i think the selective color takes me away from the photo and more to the selective color. if that makes any sense at all?

    One thing I don't like is how the hair is blurred. I would like to be able to see the strands of hair. I think that would add to the glamour.
