Morning Carol, it's v2 for me as we'll, I like the side on aspect more. As always terrific detail, you've captured those eyes extremely well.

The pose is excellent - great detail Carol; I do like the pose better in v1 but I think the detail is slightly (very slightly) better in v2. A great capture. Love Ronnie's idea of his eyes being like Everton Mints! SmileSmile
