Driving me insane

OK, it's the little things that can make you go nut and that's where I'm heading. Can anybody tell me which one is better; or another suggestion?

#2. Did you try bringing up the right side of her eye lid (on the eye that you adjusted) to reduce where it peaks on the left side?

Re: Driving me insane

Thanks Mike!
No, I think it appears that way because I had brought the left side of her face down and was trying to work the eye back in so it would be looking at you like the right eye is. I think your right about the second choice. It help to leave for a few hours to get a better perspective on things. I'll include the before..

#2 for me as well. As for next steps.....

Balance out the eyes, ruler tool is your friend. Make it so her nose piercing is either gone, or not floating on top of the image. She still has some wrinkles on her forehead, leave those in, or remove them.

The whole feel of this image is very natural and lovely, but at the moment a tiny bit bland. It wouldn't grab my eye if I browsed past it. Try pumping the colors, locally or globally. Adjust to taste I'd say

But it is a nice looking image.

Re: Driving me insane

I like the second one also but I would move the entire eye a little to her right (closer to her nose).

Thanks DJ,
Yeah, the eye still doesn't look like it's quite in the right place but since her head is at an angle I don't think the ruler would help much.
Yeah, it doesn't have a lot of pop to it. I was going for a real clean and natural look but may try putting a little blush on her check. Or probably study some bath and such ads.
