Steady a little brightening of the IRIS.
I see. I expected that was the case.
I know that is commonly done.
But I always wonder WHY? (yes, I know why others do it)
That is because I prefer to see the natural eyes and natural catchlights etc.
Of course I understand that many photographers like to "enhance" the colors and make them seem brighter and make "ideal catchlights" and such.
In the first image, the lower girl's eyes look "fake" to me.
Perhaps that is natural, but IF not, then I think the "brightening" is too much.
I do not advise "brightening" eyes at all.
I am sure others will feel differently, but...hey...that is my opinion and it is OK with me if you continue doing what you like to do..
