I didn't sharpen it at all it came from the lens that way, I chose to crop it this way because the young boy was shy and clung to his mom's leg. The background is her knit pants...it is what it is. As for his eyes, they are incredible and that is their natural appearance. That all being said, I appreciate your comments and perhaps will soften a portrait style shot like this in the future.
