I'm going to have to look at the originals, I pretty sure the first one I didn't do much editing on the eyes except dodge the area because it was a little dark, and an overall sharping to the picture.
The second one I can't remember how much saturation I did but I believe I had my brush at 20% and maybe went around the iris a couple times. I have been trying to find the right balance with the eye editing. Also there could be an issue with my monitor not being calibrated. I just order a Spyder Calibration yesterday and should have it in a couple of days this should help.
I'm going to edit them again and see what happens. Thanks for the C&C.
NO complaints here Nice photos and great focus. Eye popping is a personal preference and altho I don't eye pop, I see nothing wrong with it. People DO think I eye pop haha although I just defog the whole photo.
Oh don't get me wrong, I love eye popping, and do it myself. But like you said, I think there is nice balance somewhere. The children obviously have naturally gorgeous, stand-out eyes and making them pop even more is awesome. Just for ME, the above is a little too much. IMO.
