Violeta Harrington September 20, 2010

It is overwhelming to have so many nice people stopping by and leaving their comments and congratulations here. Thank you!!!

Donna, I am truly honored to have you as a fan, because your work is outstanding! I have been asked the question about the eyes quite a few times. There is no program, action or filter, each image is edited differently, because each image is unique. Most important to me is to have well lit eyes, with true highlights. I am going to post more about the way I edit the eyes on my blog:
Feel free to visit and subscribe. Once again, thank you for your kind words!
