Looks like some very cyanic sclera and grass (global issue )

thx Kent, didn't see it at all!
For instructional purposes, despite the embarrassment, I am leaving the original post up.
No true neutrals, so I went with the sclera. At this point they are almost white (grew out of the blue sclera phase)

Here is a quick correction, probably a bit overdone in neutralizing the sclerae

Very nice!

A few minor suggestions?

If you feel you've had some "overcompensation" in making the adjustments ... you can always layer a duplicate of original back over the adjusted version, and use a mixture of masks, opacity & blending mode (hue or color) to dial it in to taste in various areas.

As our subjects are three dimensional, the color of lighting in the various planes (AI=AR) can be somewhat different at times. Feathered masks and gradients can tie them together, yet have them different for S&P.

That said ... the eyes look much improved.

Colors approaching a more natural tone in your rework, Scott.

Have you got any more body to include?

Continually amazed @ people's color acuity. I thought the OP image looked fine until I saw Scott's edit then Karens. I see it AFTER the fact but never before.

Nice shot Scott!
Did you achieve that look in camera with a shallow DOF or is that from post work? I like it however it was done.

SOOC
Not much more space to work with


Effect?
Shallow DOF, some overall reduction in clarity for a dreamer look, a few more tweaks including masked sharpening for edges, low detail

The point I was offering, rather obtusely, was a suggestion to compose somewhat wider in camera. That allows you to tweak the composition more in post. Years ago camera resolution put a higher premium on composing more tightly in camera. Now you can shoot wider and crop with plenty of detail. This is especially useful when shooting young'un that move quickly and a little unpredictably.
