Many photographers go to great lengths to get a catch light in the eyes of their subjects, it makes the eyes look alive. Here we have a flycatcher (?) with and without a catchlight. No matter how much I tried brightening the eye, it simply was not possible to improve the eyes in that shot despite the better pose. In the end the catchlight makes for the better shot.
