I'm not so good with giving directions, so I hope this all makes sense. I learned this technique from a very talented camera-bearing mommy on another board I frequent. Hope it helps out.
This is my image to begin with. All I did was crop and resize it.
Duplicate your layer. I just grab the layer on the layer pallet and drag it to the new layer button, but you can also go to Layer>Duplicate Layer.
With the bottom layer hidden (click the eye on that layer) and the top layer selected, erase the irises on the top layer.
Make the bottom layer visible again. With it selected go to Image>Adjustments>Brightness/Contrast and play with your settings.
With bottom layer still selected go to Image>Adjustments>Color Balance and play with your settings. With J's blue eyes I upped the blue, green, and cyan levels. For brown eyes you'll want to adjust the yellows and reds.
Again with the bottom layer selected go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation and adjust.
Flatten your image and voila! If you do this before making any other adjustments to your overall image, you'll want to select your top layer and work with only it so that your overall adjustments don't mess with your eyes. If that makes sense. If you end up with alien eyes, then you've probably played too much
When working with that bottom layer, you can also use your USM to sharpen the eyes. That will help make them sparkle.
wow, thanks for taking the time to show us!! =) It's a really great edit!!
