Cropped. Adjusted contrast, levels, hue and saturation. Created layer for the eyeball to maintain full color -- adjust contrast, levels, hue and saturation for eyeball. Then I just deleted the extraneous parts that were distracting.

I like this image alot and I can respect the artistic aspects (washed out and overexposed). BUT, I wish there wasn't the reflection in the eye. If it were a single spot of light, it'd be fine....but the window and other distracting elements within the eye's reflection take away from the power of this image. Overall a very nice job though. Frame-able.

Less-common treatment of a comon subject -- not my favorite type but well-done.

I really like the color and lack of color here. That reflection sure is odd though.

very nice high key shot. My only problem is the reflection, it's almost too much in the composition. It also looks like you lost some eyelash/lid detail when you converted to high key.

Like the desat here, and the reflection in the eye is quite interesting in an affronting sort of a way.

interesting processing on this image, i'm just not sure what you were after with the crop you chose. there just seems to be an awful lot of extra space around the eye. better luck with the other voters. 6 is the best i can do here.

Nice photo. Love the reflection, but I couldn't help but wish that the eyelashes looked sharper.

Love the blown out ..partial desat treatment, although, both techniques can be harshly treated by voters in challenges.Hope this does well.
Good luck
