Touch Up Tuesday: Eye pop

SOOC and After:

Edit: For this edit I really wanted to make Ruari's eyes pop! First I adjusted the contrast/brightness... etc. and cleaned up the shadows using my clone tool (I also removed that little bit of pacifier and the crusty under her nose).

Next I ran my Florabella Sharpen/Defog action. Flattened... and ran that same action a second time! But, this time I erased the sharpen/defog over everything BUT her eyes, just for a little extra pop. Then, I ran my Florabella Afternoon action (that gave it the golden glow). And lastly, I ran the Florabella Sheer Haze action. I lowered the Sheer Haze layers opacity to 25% and erased the layer just over her eyes... for just a teeny bit more pop. :) AND, that's it!

Photography love...
