I think some people see the backlight that is all along the side of her face and see the area along her eye as the "white" or sclera. I have reworked the original but I'm not sure if I rephotographed it or reposted it.

Thanks! I was really trying to create a literal link between the girl and the horse - the line that is made by the direction of her gaze, leads you to the horses eyes...
