Does it look more appealing to you or is it not really that big of a deal. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.

  1. Thank You for this amazing lesson. I gotta say, I’m not a fan of the dialated pupil. It takes away from the color in her eyes which in my opinion give her some depth. But that’s just my opinion. I can see it’s application did a google search of some magazine covers and such and I did immediatly notice it. I don’t know, jury is still out for me – LOL. But again, I LOVE having the option and I can visualize instances where this would be really beneficial.

  2. Personally I like the portrait better without the eyes dilated. Her eyes are such a beautiful color and they are so captivating before the dilation, and I feel it covers too much of the color in her eyes
