Ahh, better. Now I can just see a catch-light in the left of the eye. I would bring this little highlight up even further.

Lovely portrait.

Yes, better and visible eyes are always a plus.
Bravo for this nicely composed portrait.

Hopefully, this is a further improvement.

I tried to retrieve the glitter in the bird's eye.

I also removed color noise that was in the green.

Comments welcomed.
