Eyes in Lightroom

I have been practicing more and more with Lightroom (my editing software). I tried the eye pop on Kera. At least I think it is the eye pop, I just guessed on what to do :). I think the whites of her eyes are too white, so I deleted my changes made to the photograph after I saved a copy and started over... now I like the eyes on my last edit the best, but her skin on edit one the best. ARGH! Thanks to my friend Amy on a forum I am a part of, she told me from now on just delete the dots on the edit that I don't like. Hahha I did not know this, Ahhh! Now I have no clue what I did to Kera's skin in the first edit. I'll probably play with it a few more times.

Here they are...

SOOC
1st edit, too much eye pop I guess...Looks kind of fake and I don't like that, I do like the skin.
2nd edit, I like the eyes but not the skin :) ::Sigh::

can you add the two pictures together on two different layers in lightroom? If you can, put the first picture in on top and the second picture in underneath it and then just erase the eyes from the top layer and voila! you'll have the skin from the first edit with the eyes from the second edit.

Nope, no layers in LR :( But I probably could in PSE right??

About Me

My name is Melissa Schilling. I am married to my wonderful husband Dane who I have been with for 10 years. We have toddler twin babies Drake and Kera. I started this blog in hopes to one day be a photographer. As for right now my husband and I are using photography as a hobby we can do together. We are starting the 365 day project August 1, 2009. I can't wait to start to learn more and more about my camera. I look forward to any feedback. I will be mostly focusing on people subjects, because that is what I am interested in. However there may be a few other types of photography in the mix.

Thanks for looking at my photo blog, please follow me if you are interested in seeing all of my work, and where this takes me in the future.
