Thanks Craig
yes it was me with the cats and yes it is more subtle than them, faces seem better that way, and this photo seems to have been more subtle than some ( if you understand what i mean) will post another one soon just got to wade through some photo's first

palms,

i think the second set needs some color adjustment before the other treatments. the skin colors look off to me.

Craig

edit: looks like too much green.

Palms,
Other than the color thing on number two that Craig already poiinted out I woudl say absolutely becautiful work! I think the eyes are great and one of the best things about each of them, how much they really pop! Great Job!
