    Jon:

    I like the lighting overall, pretty dramatic, but would be tempted to brush in a little increased exposure in the area around the eye. Subtle.

    Looks good Randy, I did increase that area exposure but yours is better - did you add more saturation /vibrance or point colours?

    John:

    Just a curves adjustment . No color or sat changes. Brushed in the change with a 30% soft brush.

    Thanks Randy - I would not have thought of doing that - (useful tip)! Sorry for late reply - been having problems with PC but hopefully getting it sorted out.
