This is my favorite photo for testing out new color correction techniques. It's not only very color-shifted, but it has different shifts in different tonal levels. I also use to test sharpening techniques, for obvious reasons.

Anyway, with Halloween upon us, I thought "why should I have all the fun?". And, in keeping with ghoulish things, I thought "why make it TOO easy?".

So here's the catch: No painting-in new or replacement color. The final colors should be a correction of the existing color. Sharpening is optional.

Just don't forget to include your detailed description of how you did it.

And don't forget there are plenty of other Halloween Challenges here you can do.

Challenge: Color correct without painting in new color

Do your best to retouch "Halloween 1946", and post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you restore and how much you restore is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version
