I selected the area around the iris, desaturated the rest of the image, and then increased contrast just a little. The color of the eye was already quite blue, all I did was make it pop a little more. :)

Thanks for looking! I'm glad you like it.

Actually I edit using GIMP. It does a lot of the same things that photoshop does, but you could just as easily achieve this effect in photoshop, too.

The square border around the round shapes really works surprisingly well :D

Appropriate title I have to admit. But more than that, the hue of that eye makes me think that it could gaze into the world too, just a thought, and not that I believe in such things, but I guess thats the power of art.

Wonderful detail on the lashes, but the image feels a touch overprocessed, as it was likely pushed for color. If you get a chance again, take a low-powered flashlight and aim it at the eye from the side -- like, almost beyond your model's peripheral vision. The light will catch in the eye and give you a wonderful color pop.

Very cool shot. The detail is very impressive and the selective desaturation makes it stand out even more.
