Wow a big thanks to everyone who has taken time to look and comment on my previous upload.
I'm stunned bye the response from so many fellow photographers here on EPZ.
I more than welcome any comments good or bad.
And will do my best to respond to all who have commented.
Once again a BIG thank you to everyone.
Any way here it is without the selective colouring in the eyes.

Great tones, works a treat.

Blacks, whites and all tones in between. Who could ask for more?!

You've really exemplified the high key look here without sacrificing tonal range. Like it!

Hi Phil, Congrats on the ton of votes on the version with the accentuated eyes. I do prefer this one but it's quite clear that this is not everyone's opinion. Anyway, terrific work in both cases. Best regards, Bert

Hi Phil, What a super portrait. I've just peeked at yesterdays posting, which is also superb, but I prefer this one without the selective eye colouring.
