So there's a clear consensus that the natural look is preferable, at least among the folks here. Now it's possible there's a contrast effect operating here... having the photos side-by-side could make the punched-up one look over the top and/or the natural one look dull.

So what do you think of the images below? No natural background in this case... that might make a difference. And I'm not showing the 'originals' so as to avoid a contrast effect.  [Bit of background: I messed up on these shots... stupidly took them at F8 without checking, which meant they suffer badly from camera shake in the low light]. Anyway, I like the boosted oranges and blues, but maybe its senility setting in. Should I be worried?

boosted blues are nice, boosted orange is distracting for me, wood grain on table is odd, what is her hair color?

and, a full eyebrow shot is highly requested, err I mean recommended.

Her hair colour is 'amber' (lightened) but it gets quite boosted with this treatment. The grain on the table is also toward orange, but not as bright. Here's a more realistic rendition:
