I very curious to see where this ends up. I think I have a top 3 but when I look at the score and see a mid 6 that makes me think 5th - 15th area. Oh well we'll see.

I would like to thank all the those that voted and commented on this image. I know a few of you said that the eyes were a little over processed but to be honest I didn't really do much to them. I actually took this photo for the eyes for a pageant entry photo, The mother wanted to sell the eyes as the little girl does have very pretty eyes.

I think this year I will start doing a before and after on all my shots. So with that said here is this before and after.

What a sweet face. The pp'ing is a bit harsh for me, perhaps too much contrast

A real cutie, the colors are my favorite combination -- yellow or golden brown and blue, love it! -- and the eyes, though over-done for my taste, do jump out at the viewer.

Almost as if the focus is on the hat and not the eyes.

Very cute. Terrific colors and highlights in the eyes. I love how there are details in the hat but at the brim the focus is lost so that you jump back to the eyes.
