Creative interpretations: Eyes

I took this close up photo of a young, tame, Eagle Owl during a visit to the Isle of Arran in Scotland. Many people feel uneasy looking so closely at such a penetrating stare - does it affect you in that way ?
Perhaps the talented people on here would like to play artistically with the photo. MY attempt involved the following stages ( as far as I remember ) :

Dup Bkgrnd
Run BuzzPro Simplify 1
Impressionist - Trimoon -Chalk Sketch Steve II - with default settings
reduce opacity of layer
Texturizer layer - canvas - 30% opacity

I will be intrigued to see other interpretations - thanks

What a co-incidence...I was sitting yesterday with a photo of a stream and rocks from the Isle of Arran and working on it in Painter!

This is a rare photo Xplorer and looking forward to creating with it, many thanks. Your result is marvellous

Great photo, xplorer!

I started off in one direction, and ended up doing some things that erased what I had already done (!!?) Did sharpen/aniso, but then thought he should be looking out of something, and then ended up running the zoom blur on a larger canvas.
