From Steven R. Page:

"This photo is of my late brother-in-law's brother who has also since past on. It is the only picture we have of him and his wife together prior to his death and someone accidentally opened the back of the camera before the film was rewound. This has been cropped so it will result in a 5x7 picture with a nasty yellow border where the light hit it cut off. There is one darker streak over his arm resting on the table which is more color correct while the rest of the picture which is is muddy and grainy. The only way I've been able to make her face pop out is to do a color dodge layer but that won't do. There are also lots of scratches on her face and an unsightly chair over her leg.

It may be a simple task for the advanced restorer but for me it seems to be overwhelming. A simple color correction doesn't help for the contrast is way off and doesn't recover the actual true colors."

Challenge: Color correct this photo

Post your 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
